16 time Grammy Award winner Sting is set to headline the NBA all-star halftime show next month in Toronto.
The veteran musician, who kicks off a tour with Peter Gabriel in June, will take to the stage at the ACC on Sunday February 14th, for the 65th edition of the NBA All-Star Game halftime show during the Entertainment Series presented by JBL.
Montreal acrobatic troupe Cirque du Soleil will provide the opening entertainment, before the first time NBA All-Star Game to be held outside the U.S gets underway.
Meanwhile, organisers have already confirmed that Toronto rapper Drake will coach Canada’s team at the NBA all-star celebrity game on February 12th at the Ricoh Coliseum, a team that includes two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash and Toronto Blue Jays all-star right-fielder Jose Bautista.
Comedy star Kevin Hart will coach the U.S. team, which includes actors Michael B. Jordan and Jason Sudeikis.
