Sting and Shaggy bring their musical bromance to Brum

After winning a Grammy for best reggae album Sting and Shaggy are returning to the UK with their 44/876 tour.

The pair began their collaboration in 2018 and produced the album, also called 44/876, a name which refers to the telephone dialling codes to their native countries from America.

With sales of more than half a million and touring success in North America and South America and eastern Europe already secured, the prospect of British gigs will be very appealing to fans.

They have already been busy for some high-profile audiences in the UK, they made headlines with a memorable performance of ‘heir single Don’t Make Me Wait at The Queen’s 92nd birthday celebration at the Royal Albert Hall. 

The album was dubbed “fantastically catchy” with “songs strong enough to fit anywhere into Sting’s impressive canon” in The Telegraph’s four-star review, and “a fine bromance” by The Guardian.

The 44/876 tour rolls into Birmingham’s O2 Academy on Friday May 24.
