Sting Acropolis Odeon Herodes Athens


Where: Odeon of Herodes Atticus
When: 5 & 6 July 2024
Why Go: Don’t miss the concert of the year in Athens

Sting will perform as part of the 2024 Athens and Epidaurus Festival in what will be one of the most memorable concerts held at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, an iconic venue more than 1800 years old, that lies beneath the slopes of the Acropolis.

Performing on this majestic stage on 5 and 6 July 2024, composer, singer-songwriter, actor, author, and activist Sting was born in Newcastle, England before moving to London in 1977 to form The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. The band released five studio albums, earned six Grammy Awards and two Brits, and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.


Throughout his illustrious career, Sting has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist. He has individually received 10 Grammy Awards, two Brits, a Golden Globe, and an Emmy. 

The venue: Odeon of Herodes Atticus

Sting Acropolis Odeon Herodes Athens

With a capacity of 4,680, this outdoor odeon is a venue with exemplary acoustics and historical significance. This is the second time in its entire history that a rock band has been allowed to perform on its stage, usually reserved for operas and Greek tragedies. The Foo Fighters performed here in the summer of 2017 in what was an unprecedented and historic event followed by Sting himself in 2018.

The Athens & Epidaurus Festival

The Athens and Epidaurus Festival is the city’s annual arts festival and a highlight of the Greek summer calendar. With a legacy that spans more than sixty years, today it incorporates a full programme of music, theatre, dance and visual arts that takes place at various venues around the city.
