Sting, not Drake or any other artist that the NBA’s youthful audience might be familiar with, has been selected to headline the halftime show during the All Star game in Toronto next month. I very much respect this move by Adam Silver and the NBA.
“And now, allow me to introduce your halftime performer…. FABOLOUS AND BOBBY SHMURDA! SIKE! HERE’S MOTHERFUCKING 64-YEAR OLD STING!!! ROXANNE, BITCHES!”
There will also be a Cirque Du Soleil performance prior to the game which is worth the price of admission alone. I’ve seen Cirque Du Soleil, relatively sober, and thought it was nothing short of magnificent so their basketball inspired set is going to blow the tits off of the Air Canada Centre.
