“This outstanding show marks a first time appearance of an iconic Pop Jazz artist like Chris Botti and the return of Sting after his sell out gig in 2015, to perform together in a rare live performance,” stated Anthony Younes, CEO and Founder Chillout Productions. “It’s definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity to watch a stellar show by these two Grammy Award-winning artists. Don’t miss out on being one of the thousands of guests to witness this special concert event next February as they prove why they hold multiple Grammys and the hearts of millions of music lovers.”
The duo are also performing in Manila in the Philippines on March 3.
