Sting is coming to Perth for the first time in seven years

It has been a long wait for WA fans to see The Police frontman, with his last visit to the State seven years ago.

The 17-time Grammy winner will be joined by fellow English rocker Joe Sumner and a full rock ensemble

Sting performed the My Songs tour to sold-out crowds in London over six nights in April.

UK media hailed it a “masterclass” and said Sting remained an “undeniably skilled performer with a gold-plated back catalogue”.

Sting last performed in WA at the A Day on the Green festival in 2015.

Sting is returning to the festival’s line-up in February in-between the tour, but only for the eastern states

The Perth concert will be the only chance WA fans get to see him. Tickets go on sale on Friday, September 16.
