There’s no orchestra this time, and nary a lute to be found. For the third consecutive year — possibly a record for him — Sting has realized that he’s at his best when fronting a rock band. The singer announced dates for the 2013 version of the Back to Bass tour he’s been on since 2011.

Beginning in Kelowna, British Columbia on May 30, Sting will play a month of dates across North America. After that he will play a handful of shows in Europe, culminating with the Stavern Festival in Stavern, Norway on July 12. However, more dates are expected to be announced soon.

In what is being billed as a greatest hits tour, Sting will be joined by his longtime five-piece band, which consists of keyboardist David Sancious, Dominic Miller on guitar, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, Peter Tickell on electric fiddle and Jo Lawry on background vocals.
