Sting opened his Back to Bass Tour last night at Boston's Wang Theatre at the Citi Performing Arts Center. The new band comprising of Dominic Miller, Rufus Miller (guitarist), Vinnie Colaiuta (drummer), Peter Tickell (electric fiddle), and Jo Lawry (vocalist) were joined by Chris Botti on two songs. The setlist, which comprised of 22 songs was an exciting mix of solo and Police tunes although heavily biased (17 post-Police songs) towards his solo career with a number of songs being aired for the first time in several years. The Sacred Love and Ten Summoner's Tales albums were particularly well represented with Stolen Car, Inside, Sacred Love and Never Coming Home from the former and Seven Days, Fields Of Gold, Heavy Cloud No Rain, Love Is Stronger Than Justice and She's Too Good For Me included in the set. The full set list was:

All This Time
Demolition Man
Seven Days (with Chris Botti)
I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying
I Hung My Head
Stolen Car (Take Me Dancing) (with Chris Botti)
Fortress Around Your Heart
Fields Of Gold
Sacred Love
Ghost Story
Heavy Cloud No Rain
Inside
The Hounds Of Winter
Love Is Stronger Than Justice (The Munificent Seven)
Driven To Tears
End Of The Game
Never Coming Home
Lithium Sunset
Every Breath You Take
Next To You
She's Too Good For Me
Message In A Bottle
