The former Police frontman will hit the road for an intimate run with drummer Chris Maas, who was the touring drummer for Mumford and Sons, and his longtime collaborator and touring guitarist Dominic Miller.

The run, which kicks off with two consecutive nights at The Fillmore in Detroit, Michigan, on September 17, will see the trio perform Sting's biggest hits and play multiple nights at some venues.

Members of Sting’s Fan Club will have the opportunity to access a special pre-sale by visiting, starting Monday, March 11. Additional presales including Citi and American Express will run throughout the week. The general on sale will begin Friday, March 15 at 10am local time on

Meanwhile, Billy Joel recently revealed that his dream supergroup would include Sting, Don Henley, and "maybe" John Mayer.

The 'Piano Man' named the 'Shape of My Heart' hitmaker, the Eagles rocker, and the 'Half of My Heart' star as the musicians he'd recruit to form the ultimate all-star ensemble.

Howard Stern asked him: “Wouldn’t it have been great if George Harrison and Tom Petty had asked you to be in The Travelling Wilburys?”

The Travelling Wilburys, the legendary roots rock supergroup, comprised Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, and the late George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.

However, Joel suggested: “Me, Don Henley and Sting. And maybe John Mayer on guitar."

Asked why he never got around to forming the group, he replied: “Well, everybody’s busy.”

Stern then said Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney would make a good member.

However, Joel insisted: “He was in the super-est group of all-time. I don’t have the nerve to do that.”

But he did say his bandmate, Sir Ringo Starr, would be cool as the drummer.

Sting has been opening for the 'Uptown Girl' hitmaker at select shows of his North American tour.
