Some of his biggest Billboard Hot 100 hits include 1983's "Every Breath You Take" and 1979's "Roxanne." British singer-songwriter Peter Gabriel will also join Sting as the two prep for their Rock Paper Scissors tour, starting June 21 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
Performing arts group Cirque du Soleil will provide the pre-game entertainment with a special performance blending acrobatics, dance and technology to tell the narrative of a basketball dream. The 2016 NBA All-Stars will be introduced following the production.
