05.17.11 Symphonicity Concert Originally Planned For Minsk Moves To Vilnius...


Local promoter Allstars.by announced today that the Symphonicity concert previously scheduled for June 27th in Minsk will now take place in Vilnius. The concert will now be held outdoors at the prestigious Vignis Park.

Unfortunately, with the current economic situation in Belarus, the decision to move the concert from Belarus to Lithuania was made to enable Sting fans the best possible access to the concert.

Fans who have purchased tickets to the Minsk performance will be able to use these at the new show on June 27th in Vilnius. Ticket holders who are not able to go to Vilnius, will receive a refund in accordance with the Regulations on conducting of cultural and entertainment events (Presidential Decree No. 542 on October 19, 2010).

Persons wishing to purchase tickets to the new show at Vingis Park may do so at http://www.bilietai.lt, the Lithuanian National ticket operator. Tickets for the rescheduled performance will be available starting Friday, 13 May, 2011 at 10AM (local time). Ticket prices will range from 130Lt to 400Lt.

For additional information, please apply to Minsk, Independence Avenue,44.

Matthew's album duet partners include Sting on his soulful classic 'Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot' (from his 1996 album, Mercury Falling). AOL will premiere the audio of the duet on May 6th followed by the premiere of Matthew's incredible AOL Sessions performance on May 10th, including key tracks from the album http://music.aol.com/sessions. Matthew then teams up with Gwyneth Paltrow (who plays his recurring flame Holly Holliday on Glee) for a duet on Judy Garland's Wizard Of Oz standard, 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow.' And Elton John is already raving about his duet: "...It's great, really fantastic. He [Matthew] sings great on it. It's a medley of 'Mona Lisas and Madhatters' going into 'Rocket Man'..."

Before Sting would take his "Symphonicities" tour to Eastern Europe this summer, he needed a tune-up. So he chose the world famous Apollo Theater for last night's show - with an audience comprising fan club members, family and friends. Every seat was taken, and then some as the fans - some of whom traveled great distances - kept running up near the stage and staying there. They were almost all women, and they had their dancing shoes on. The show - with nearly 40 musicians crammed onto the stage including virtuoso guitarist Dominic Miller and knock out vocalist Jo Lawry - pretty much reproduced the same set Sting did last summer at the Metropolitan Opera and on his CD, "Live in Berlin..."
