Sting & Shaggy to Tour Russia with Hits of 44/876
September 29, 2018 10:58


The main mash-up of the century is live in Russia: the British rock legend and the Jamaican reggae king will perform their album "44/876" in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Kazan and Yekaterinburg.
The Cherrytree Music Company, Live Nation and Matryoshka Concerts proudly present: STING & SHAGGY "44/876" - a joint tour, impregnated with the island spirit!

November 11 will see this much-talked-about concert at the Olympic Concert Hall in Moscow.


The European and North America tours of Sting and Shaggy will be followed with incredibly dynamic shows in four Russian cities - Yekaterinburg, Kazan, St. Petersburg and Moscow.
The collaboration that is still hard to believe. Sting once again proved himself to be a top-notch musician with incredible creative horizons, having joined hands with Shaggy, one of the most popular reggae performers of the last decades. It yielded the album “44/876”, with its major hit “Do not Make Me Wait” having topped the Billboard chart. The song is a dedication to the music and culture of the Caribbean islands. The best hits of both Sting and Shaggy got reinterpreted with new sound.


The two-hour music journey is referred to as one of the most awaited concerts of the year: Sting and Shaggy will present in Russia the songs from the recently released album “44/876” (A&M/Interscope Records), as well as perform all-favorite hits, including Every Breath You Take, Englishman In New York, Message In A Bottle, It Was not Me, Mr. Boombastic and Angel.

The Russian tour of Sting and Shaggy will kick off at Yekaterinburg-Expo Centre in Yekaterinburg on November 5.

It will proceed in Kazan (Tatneft Arena) on November 7 and St. Petersburg (Ice Palace) on November 9. The Russian tour will be crowned with a brilliant show at the Olympic Stadium in Moscow on November 11.

The name of the album is made of 44, which is the telephone code of Britain, Sting’s motherland, and 876, i.e. the phone code of Jamaica, where Shaggy was born. It was in Jamaica where Sting wrote his legendary hit, Every Breath You Take.
The songs Do not Make Me Wait, Morning is Coming, and Gotta Get Back My Baby from the new album are the results of Sting and Shaggy’s common passion for reggae music with its lightness and spontaneity. The music that is timeless, bright, sunny and carefree as Jamaica itself.

On May 25, 2018 A&M/Interscope Records released the album “44/876”: The Remixes, which included remixes of songs from the album "44/876", and songs co-performed with Chris Baio from Vampire Weekend, the Brazilian duo Tropkillaz, and Cherry Cherry Boom Boom (Madonna, Lady Gaga), as well as Grammy winner Dave Aude.

On the “44/876” Russian tour, Sting and Shaggy will be accompanied with their best musicians, namely Dominic Miller (guitar), Josh Freese (percussion) and Rufus Miller (guitar) from Sting’s band, as well as members Melissa Musique (vocal), Gene Noble (backing vocals) and Kevon Webster (keyboards) from Shaggy’s band.
Thus the audience will enjoy a topnotch concert, unrivalled throughout the world.


When: 8 pm on Sunday, November 11, 2018.
