Sting, who teamed up with Peter Gabriel at the Pepsi Center last July, returns to the area — but at the much more intimate Fillmore Auditorium — on Valentine's Day, Tuesday, February 14, 2017. The tour is in support of the singer and bassist's brand-new album, 57th & 9th, and features his longtime guitarist Dominic Miller, drummer Josh Freese and guitarist Rufus Miller. Sting's son Joe Sumner, who's also part of Fiction Plane, and Tex Mex band the Last Bandoleros will open the show.
