Here’s one that’ll sell out fast: Crossover dancehall artist Shaggy and former Police crooner Sting have joined forces for a tour of unexpectedly small American venues, including an October 5 gig at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium.

It’s a pairing that makes sense, given the pronounced faux-Jamaican accent and boombastic bass-heavy production values on “Roxanne” “Message in a Bottle” and other Police hits that Shaggy grew up listening to on the radio. Much more recently, the two musicians teamed up for their newly released 44/876 album, and subsequently serenaded the Queen of England for her birthday. Under the circumstances, a world tour was all but inevitable, and is guaranteed to sell out quickly. Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 24, at 10 a.m.
