Sting has rescheduled his upcoming Las Vegas “My Songs” run and pushed it back until the latter half of August. Sting's “My Songs” Las Vegas stand was set to start next month and will now play at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on August 15th, 19th, 21st, 22nd, 26th, 28th, 29th, and September 2nd.
Sting posted a message to fans on Sting.com, which read:
Sting’s Las Vegas residency performances scheduled for May 22 through June 6 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace are being rescheduled in accordance with recommendations from the CDC regarding hosting events. We apologize for any inconvenience this poses to ticket holders.
Guests are advised to hold onto their tickets as they will be honored for the rescheduled dates and those details will be sent out as soon as possible. Sting looks forward to opening his “My Songs” Vegas residency August 15th, with shows through September 2nd on sale now. Thank you for understanding.
Earlier this month, Sting had postponed his May 1st and 2nd concerts at Philly's The Met for November 23rd and 24th respectively. Joining Sting at the dates will be his eldest son, Joe Sumner, who'll serve as his dad's opening act.
Sting explained that his songs from throughout his career are all connected because they all center around matters of the heart: “I think love is a fantastic, almost a prism for anything, any kind of human situation, whether it's political or social or whatever. Love is a wonderful metaphor, y'know, it's like a hologram. You break a love affair apart and you find everything there — politics, religion, philosophy, the works. It's all there if you just scratch the surface. I think I've learned that I don't have to be singing about social issues, I can sing about love — and all of those issues are below the surface, anyway.”
