Sting has announced his first 15 shows for 2019. So far, Sting, whose upcoming trek is dubbed the "My Songs" tour, has spring and summer European dates on the books for Norway, Denmark, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, France, and Portugal. There's been no word yet on a North American leg of the tour.

According to his official website (Sting.com): "(The tour) will be a rollicking, dynamic show focusing on the most beloved songs written by Sting and spanning the 16-time Grammy Award winner’s prolific career with the Police and as a solo artist. Fans can expect to hear 'Englishman In New York,' 'Fields Of Gold,' 'Shape Of My Heart,' 'Every Breath You Take,' 'Roxanne,' 'Message In A Bottle.' and many more, with Sting accompanied by an electric, rock ensemble."

Sting has never been shy to break new ground by writing and recording in different genres or reinventing his past works. He told us that ultimately, he has no regrets regarding the musical decisions he's made over the past 40 years: "I don't think if you do good work with integrity and care, it's never wasted. It always feeds the reservoir, it feeds the creative soul. That's more important than bums on the seats, or, y'know, CD sales, or whatever. But I have no complaints of it in any regard." :
