Chillout Productions has today announced that sixteen-time Grammy award-winning musician Sting will headline the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2015.
On February 26th, 2015, Sting will perform many of his greatest solo hits including ‘Desert Rose’ and ‘Englishman in New York’, as well as some of The Police’s most popular classics such as ‘Message In A Bottle’, which helped the band to secure a place in The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
Anthony Younes, co-founder and CEO of Chillout Productions, said: “His [Sting's] ability to effortlessly and successfully compose and perform Jazz, Pop and Rock songs makes him the ideal artist to help us mark the evolution of Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2015 towards becoming an event that brings together a multi-genre fusion of international musical talent in order to perform in front of the world’s most multicultural and cosmopolitan audience.”
The support act for the night will be 28-year-old American violinist Lindsey Stirling who is also a dancer, performance artist, and composer of a variety of music styles, from classical to pop and hip-hop to electronic dance music.
An expected 35,000 music fans will attend the main gigs during the three-day Jazz Festival to enjoy the diverse line-up of artists, which - as well as Sting - includes James Blunt, Christina Perri and John Legend.
