    Musical phenom Sting and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra are touring this summer and plan on making two stops in South Jersey.  

    First, they'll be at the Borgata in Atlantic City on Friday, July 9 and the next night, they'll rock the Susquehanna Bank Center.

    Tickets for the Friday show go on sale this Saturday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Tickets for the Saturday, July 10 performance go on sale on Monday, March 22 at 10 a.m.

    Sting took an interest in collaborating with orchestras following an invitation to perform with the Chicago Symphony in 2008. He reworked his music and joined the orchestra on stage. He continued his symphonic collaboration in Jan. 2010 with the Philadelphia Orchestra to help celebrate the Academy of Music's 153rd birthday.
