Sting’s 57th & 9th World Tour celebrates his first rock/pop album in more than a decade. This concert, filmed at the Olympia Paris in April 2017, reflects the impulsive energy of the 57th & 9th album recording sessions.
Blistering performances of new songs including the infectious, guitar driven “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You”, and the anthemic “50,000”, alongside classics from The Police as well as Sting’s illustrious solo career, showcase the full range of his musical styles and songwriting influences.
Sting is joined by a 4-piece band including his longtime guitarist, Dominic Miller, Josh Freese (drums), Rufus Miller (guitar) and Percy Cardona (accordion) with backing vocals from Joe Sumner plus Diego Navaira & Jerry Fuentes of The Last Bandoleros.

if only he would bring back Bring on the Night back into the Set list; would have loved to watch this killer band rock and jazz it out!!! Josh Freese is the absolute bomb behind the drum kit; imho about the best drummer out there; he just kills it in every song!
My highlight is I Hung my Head; always thought this was one of the most underrated songs in his repertoire!
Freese is beyond mind blowing what he adds to this song.
As usual the rest of the Band that Sting carries are second to none; the musicianship is about 2nd to none and Sting in addition to being in amazing shape for the girlies; has aged his voice in the utmost superb fashion!
Great concert DVD all around. Just wish I had been there in Paris!
Excellent band performance. The 57th and 9th songs fit in smoothly with his solo and Police catalog.
I was lucky to catch this tour on a couple occasions in the US and had a blast.
This live concert captures that energy but it seems there was some post production on the audio where there were a few minor quirks. I do agree that the video is movement is a tad much but otherwise and MAINLY for the MUSIC, I give this 5 stars.
The audio is excellent in DTS and Dolby 5.1. The performance superb, Sting’s vocals at his best (I don’t know how he does it while playing the bass and foot Taurus pedals), the Squeeze Box guy, Percy Cardona adds a beautiful touch. Dominic and Rufus Miller fills the sound in the middle and Josh Freese does a wonderful job on drums.
Every song was performed excellently and for those who viewed some of this on TV prior, the full concert is worth it for “Pretty Young Soldier” and “Hung My Head” which were not aired.
Standouts like Englishman in NY, So Lonely, Shape of My Heart, Message, One Fine Day, almost all the songs, makes this Blu Ray a perfect addition to Sting’s catalog.
The Last Bandoleros and Joe Sumner provide excellent solo sets and backing vocals during Sting’s performance.
I wish songs like If You Can’t Love Me This Way (best song off 57th and 9th) and the Empty Chair from the Oscar nominated Jim Foley story were included.
This DVD is for the fans, to see Sting rock like this is truly a gift for the fans, performing Police songs as good or better than the Police (well, he was the arranger, lyricist, song writer of those hits, some written prior to joining the Police), it’s awesome to see Sting deliver a performance with such energy and power.
Thank you Sting!
