Sting Reflects On Doing A Farewell Tour Soon
Sting was recently interviewed by USA TODAY to share some details about his upcoming album and he unveiled whether he is planning to retire with a farewell tour soon which his fans have been wondering about it for a long time.

In addition, the musician recently went back to the stage as a part of his My Songs Tour which had to be rescheduled to 2021 and 2022 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
In a recent interview, Sting cleared the air about his retirement plans and a possible farewell tour saying that he doesn’t have any plans about retiring. He also added that he will continue to perform his stage shows until his last breath by resembling himself to a fish who cannot live without the existence of water.
