Sting, Suede, Alice Cooper and Scorpions – among June concerts

Sting will be back in Bucharest, with a live band and a symphonic orchestra, on June 6, in the Constitution Square, on the “Symphonicity” tour. The “Symphonicity” tour presents Sting in a series of original concerts, in which the artist performs his best-known hits in a new version, re-orchestrated for symphonic arrangement.

A hard-rock legend, the veteran who literally invented the concept of “theatrical rock”, Alice Cooper goes back to doing what he knows best, with the tour “No More Mr. Nice Guy: The Original Evil Returns!”. The 2011 show, scheduled for June 14, at the Roman Arena, complete with paraphernalia straight out of a horror film, as most of Alice Cooper’s live appearances, including the classical guillotine and the boa coiled around his neck. The setlist will comprise the hits which made him famous, along with new songs.

Besides these two exceptional events, you can choose from a range of concerts by the likes of Scorpions, Suede and Lake of Tears, among others. The Scorpions concert is part of the band’s farewell tour, “Get Your Sting and Blackout World Tour”, scheduled to go on for three years and including concerts all across the world. Reggae-lovers will have a chance to savour, once more, UB40’s trademark rhythms, brought to us by the former frontman of the band, Ali Campbell, who is to concert at the Palace Hall on June 16.
