The 57th & 9th Tour is in support of the 65-year-old singer-songwriter’s latest studio album and first rock record in thirteen years with the same name. 57th & 9th was released on November 11 on A&M/Interscope Records.

There’ll most likely be more Asia dates announcements on the way but whether Singapore will be Sting’s only stop in Southeast Asia, we’ll have to wait and see. Though we do hope he enjoyed his last trip to Indonesia for the Java Jazz Festival in March enough to want to go back.
