This was reported by the concert agency Matreshka Concerts, which organizes concerts of the British musician in Russia. The reason has not been officially named, but it is clear that Sting’s decision is related to the continuation of the COVID-19 epidemic in Eastern Europe.
– It is with great regret that we announce the cancellation of the concerts of Sting My Songs (this is the name of the current tour of the musician – ed.) In Eastern Europe, scheduled for this fall. The concert organizer made every effort to reschedule the dates of the performances for the next year, but this turned out to be impossible, says the concert agency’s Facebook page.
The fact that the 2020 concerts will not take place by the decision of the musician is not unexpected. After all, the COVID-19 epidemic continues. And Sting was always sensitive to his health: he does yoga for several hours a day, walks in the park with dogs, always devotes time to meditation, and even moved from his native England to Italy. I found the climate in her province of Tuscany warmer and more comfortable for myself.
So now I decided not to risk it. That is why he will not undertake a small tour of Russia, where he was supposed to perform in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan and Yekaterinburg …
Worse: Sting declined to consider proposals for new dates for the 2021 concerts. Obviously, assuming that the coronavirus will not recede from Europe next year …
It is also a shame that we will not yet hear Sting’s new concert program, based on the material from his album My Songs, released in 2019. There are no premieres in it, but there are the musician’s main hits, composed by him during his work in The Police and his solo career. Many people now sound fresher, slightly different and more relevant to the tastes of music lovers of the XXI century. And Shape of My Heart, and Fragile, and Englishman in New York – in total, the new album has 14 studio recordings and one concert …
By the way
Matreshka concerts reported that tickets will be refunded “faster than the 180 days allotted for this, starting from September 1, 2020”.
