Sting Announces Back to Bass Tour With Miami Concert at the Fillmore November 12

Hey Roxanne, wanna spend a few hours with Sting, getting stripped down and raw?

And no, unfortunately, we're not talking about running a bath, lighting a circle of fertility candles, and prepping for a private exhibition of the former Police frontman's mastery of tantric pleasure principles.

We're referring to nothing more exotic (or explicit) than a perfectly family-friendly concert in a very public place. And specifically, Sting's newly announced Back to Bass tour, which includes a Miami show at the Fillmore Miami Beach on November 12.

According to press release blurbage, Sting will be backed by "a five-piece band in an intimate theatre setting ... performing songs spanning his dynamic and enduring solo career, from his 1985 debut The Dream Of The Blue Turtles to his latest release, Live in Berlin, plus a selection of The Police's greatest hits."

Plus, a three-disc box set, Sting: 25 Years, and a live DVD, Rough, Raw & Unreleased, will be released on September 27 "to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Sting's solo career."

So, aside from stripping down, getting raw, and dropping lame puns, the Back to Bass tour promises to be a celebration of Sting's quarter-century spent pushing the boundaries of elevator, er, rock music.

Hmm ... Sounds like maybe it is time to turn on that red light, Roxanne.
