SALT LAKE CITY, SATURDAY, AUGUST 31 @ USANA AMPHITHEATRE
PRESENTED BY ZIONS BANK
Sting will perform at the Usana Amphitheatre in Utah on August 31 for a very special, one-night-only appearance, accompanied by the Utah Symphony. All proceeds from the concert will go to the Zion Forever Project to benefit Zion National Park as part of the Park’s centennial celebration.
Drawing from a diverse and illustrious career that has produced numerous multi-platinum albums, a staggering list of number one songs, countless accolades and worldwide record sales of nearly 100 million, this concert, conducted by Rob Mathes, finds Sting performing his greatest hits re-imagined for symphonic arrangement. Selections will include fan-favorites such as “Roxanne,” “Next To You,” “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” and “Every Breath You Take,” to notable songs from Sting’s enduring solo career – “Englishman in New York,” “Fragile,” “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You,” “Fields of Gold,” and “Desert Rose.”
