Sting: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 29 2013

If you like waterside concerts, pay attention now — this won't happen for another decade: As part of the America's Cup festivities, Live Nation built a temporary, 9,000-capacity outdoor concert venue on Piers 27/29. The place opens this Thursday with a show by forgettable indie-poppers Imagine Dragons, so we'll just pretend that the real opener is Sting, who will bring his "Back to Bass" tour to the America's Cup Pavilion on Sunday. Talk about yacht rock! The rest of the summer's lineup ebbs and flows, with performances by Steve Miller Band, Weezer, Fall Out Boy, Train (ugh), and others. So yeah, Sting might be your best bet. But choose wisely, because part of the deal to get this waterside venue at all included a promise to neighbors that it won't come back for at least 10 years, if ever.
