Sting is on the road circling the globe embarking on over 80 dates beginning tonight in Germany and currently scheduled to end in France in October.  This week the tour announced dates fairly close to the Berkshires.

There are two dates within driving distance of the Berkshires.  The earliest date to see Sting is Sunday, May 15th at Mohegan Sun, and the latest date announced was for his appearance at SPAC in Saratoga Springs on Wednesday, September 7th.

Tickets for the Mohegan Sun show in May are on sale now.  Tickets for the SPAC show in September go on sale tomorrow (Thursday) at 10 am through Ticketmaster and the SPAC box office.

On another concert note, the Foo Fighters announced yesterday that they have canceled all of their upcoming tour dates following the tragic death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins last week.  In the written statement the band said “We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.”  The Foo Fighters had a scheduled date at SPAC in Saratoga Springs on July 19th.  Refunds are available at the point of purchase.
