Sting performs during the Sting & Shaggy: The 44/876 Tour at Fillmore Miami Beach on September 15, 2018 in Miami Beach, Florida.

The addition of the new concert space at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino means even more big name acts are coming to Tampa.  But this one is different. Unlike the Amphitheatre, this venue is inside and air conditioned.  And unlike Amalie Arena, you can’t have a seat in the nosebleeds because they just don’t exist. Unlike the stadium, parking is free. So it’s really becoming my favorite place to see a show!

Geno’s Sting story…

According to Sting’s website, the “My Songs” tour is “an exuberant and dynamic show featuring Sting’s most beloved songs written throughout his illustrious career, both with The Police and as a solo artist.” They say you can expect to hear hits like “Fields of Gold,” “Shape of my Heart,” “Roxanne,” “Demolition Man,” “Englishman In New York,” “Every Breath You Take,” and “Message In A Bottle.”
