Sting and Shaggy announce their One Fine Day music festival. The festival takes place in September at The Mann at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, PA.
Headlining the main stage in the TD Pavilion at The Mann, Sting and Shaggy will perform their greatest hits together. Both singers will collaborate on Every Breath You Take, Englishman In New York, Message In A Bottle, It Wasn’t Me, Boombastic, Angel, and more. The One Fine Day performance in Philadelphia is the only time in the United States that Sting and Shaggy perform together. Both will be led by Cherrytree Music Company CEO Martin Kierszenbaum.
“I love how Shaggy and I effortlessly push each other to the limits of our creativity,” adds Sting of the upcoming performance. “After I did that 44/876 After recording an album together and recording an album of reggae-style Frank Sinatra covers, a day of hits and musical adventures in one of our favorite cities seemed like the next illogical step!”
“Sting is a catalyst for musical curiosity,” says Shaggy. “When we work together, we combine our tastes in music, our individual cultures and our sense of wonder. We wanted to invite some of our favorite musicians to meet up in real time and share that same vibe on One Fine Day.”
Headlining the Skyline stage at Mann for One Fine Day will be two-time Grammy winner Thundercat, the funky bassist known for his collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu and Mac Miller. Additional performances by Koffee, Tank and the Bangas, Philly’s own G. Love & Special Sauce, Kes, Flor de Toloache and French-Italian sensation Giordana Angi all take place against the backdrop of Fairmount Park.
Tickets for the One Fine Day music festival will go on sale from May 16th at 10am EST through May 18th. Additional presales will continue throughout the week ahead of the general sale on May 19th at 10am GMT on Ticketmaster.com.
