Sting has just announced a new U.S. tour date -- as well as news that he'll be part of the touring company in 2020 for his musical, The Last Ship. The newly added concert is set for November 9th at Hollywood, Florida's Hard Rock Live and will close out Sting's current My Songs tour. Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 26th, at 10 a.m. local time.

An update on The Last Ship was posted on Sting.com, which reads in part:

Sting, will add three new cities as part of The Last Ship's international tour. After premiering in Los Angeles at Center Theatre Group's Ahmanson Theatre and then playing at SHN's Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco, The Last Ship will have engagements in Washington D.C. at the National Theatre; St. Paul, MN at the Ordway; and Detroit, MI at the Detroit Opera House.

Sting will star as shipyard foreman, "Jackie White," and will perform the role at every performance. Additional cities and casting be announced at a later date. Tickets for each engagement will go on sale at various times throughout the summer and fall.

During its initial 2014 Broadway run, Sting told us that The Last Ship earned its right to be on the "Great White Way" every single night: "It's so exciting, y'know, you get a new audience in there every night, and we fight a battle every night and we win that battle hands down in the theatre. And that word of mouth is great -- but it's a challenge. Y'know, it's not an easy. . . easy world, Broadway. It's tough. But, I'm having the time of my life, I'll tell you (laughs)."
