XM Hosts Sting for First North American Performance in Support of 'Songs From the Labyrinth'

Wednesday October 11, 10:55 am ET

Live Audience Treated to Exclusive Hour-Plus Performance and Interview with Sting as Part of XM's Critically-Acclaimed Artist Confidential Series

WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

XM, the nation's leading satellite radio service with more than 7 million subscribers, will debut the latest installment of "Artist Confidential," its popular performance and interview series, featuring legendary music artist Sting on Monday, October 16. Taped before a live audience of friends and fans at XM's New York studios in Jazz @ Lincoln Center, Sting's XM performance served as his first North American performance in support of his latest album, Songs From the Labyrinth, a collection of Elizabethan-era tunes from the works of John Dowland performed on the lute.

Accompanied by the 12-person choir, "Tapestry," and Sarajevo-born lutenist Edin Karamazov, the hour-plus long XM Artist Confidential performance included works from the new album, which was released on Tuesday. In addition, the evening's set list included Sting playing a few songs not traditionally performed on the lute -- his 1993 hit "Fields of Gold," legendary bluesman Robert Johnson's "Hell Hound on My Trail," and The Police's "Message in a Bottle."
The Sting Artist Confidential premieres on XM Monday, October 16 at Noon ET on XM Pops (XM 113), with additional encores airing through out the week. Complete scheduling information is available online at http://www.xmradio.com/exclusivemusic.
