This December, it won’t just be Santa Claus that’ll be making people happy over the Christmas holiday period. Superstar singer, Sting, will be joining the Orchestra of St. Luke’s for a special benefit show at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
The Police singer will be reworking many of his biggest hits in orchestral arrangements during the performance. The concert is slated for December 14th and has the working title, An Evening with Sting: Symphonicities. For all you Police fans out there, you’ll notice a nod to the title of the final Police album, Synchronicity.[image type=”rounded” float=”left” src=”https:rockmyworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/PJ-BQ909_carneg_P_20131002183442.jpg” alt=”acdc-logo”]
Alongside the orchestra, a quintet including singer Jo Lawry, bassist Ira Coleman, guitarist Dominic Miller, keyboardist Mike Ricchiuti, and percussionist Joe Bonadio will share the stage with Sting. This will be the first time the singer has headlined the legendary venue. All proceeds from the show will benefit Carnegie Hall’s artistic and music education programs.
Think you’ll be lucky enough to get at ticket? An exclusive number of tickets went on sale Thursday to fan club members at Sting.com. MasterCard members will be next in line to purchase tickets after the fanclub pre-sale, starting Friday at 11 a.m. EST. Tickets will be available to the general public on Monday at 8 a.m. EST. For those Sting fans with deep pockets, there are a couple of other options too: a limited number of gala benefit tickets are available for a thousand bucks apiece and will get you prime concert seating and a pre-show cocktail reception at Carnegie Hall’s Rohatyn Room. You can also add a post-show dinner at The Plaza, but those tickets start at $2,500 a head.
