Sting made the same demands regarding his show in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv on November 14.
"One of Sting's main demands is that he wants to see his fans from the stage," Vladimir Burtsev, the promoter of the Kyiv show, was quoted as saying by TSN news service.
"He wants to sing and dance with them to reggae tunes and to create positive vibes," he added. "So, the artist's management asked us in advance to make sure that no couches or tables are close to the scene during the show."
Sting is scheduled to perform with Shaggy in Yekaterinburg on November 5, in Kazan on November 7, in St Petersburg on November 9 and in Moscow on November 11.
Meanwhile, the Moscow venue, Olimpiisky sports complex, said it won't have to make any special arrangements to comply with Sting's demands.
"The artist spoke about lounges and couches, but at Olimpiisky, VIP zones are just regular seats, located slightly above the level of the fan zone," the venue's spokesperson told RIA Novosti. "This doesn't contradict Sting's beliefs in any way."
There has been no word about similar Sting's demands regarding VIP zones in other countries.
Tickets for Sting's Russian shows start at 3,000 rubles ($46) and for the Ukrainian show at 1,790 hryvnas ($63).
