Meanwhile, this year Sting sold his entire back catalogue to Universal Music for $300 million.

The singer-songwriter – who shot to fame as part of the rock band The Police, before enjoying success as a solo artist – became the latest big-name star to sell his back catalog, following in the footsteps of the likes of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.

Sting said at the time: “It felt natural to unite everything in one trusted home. It is absolutely essential to me that my career’s body of work has a home where it is valued and respected. Not only to connect with longtime fans in new ways but also to introduce my songs to new audiences, musicians and generations.”

Sir Lucian Grainge, the chairman and chief executive of Universal Music, was delighted to have secured the deal.

He said: “We are honored that by choosing Universal for his music publishing, Sting’s entire body of work as a songwriter and recording artist – from The Police to his solo work – will all be within the Universal family. It is a responsibility we don’t take lightly.”

Sting’s ‘My Songs 2023’ UK dates are as follows:

June 24 – Bedford, Bedford Park Concerts
June 25 – Scarborough, Open Air Theatre
June 30 – Lancashire, Lytham Festival
July 2 – Cardiff, Cardiff Castle
July 4 – Halifax, The Piece Hall.
