The 65th NBA All-Star Game has landed a rock legend for its halftime show. Sting, the former frontman of The Police, will serve as the marquee entertainment in Toronto next month, along with Canadian circus company Cirque du Soleil.

The 16-time Grammy Award winner is gearing up for his 19-stop North American tour this summer with fellow rocker Peter Gabriel.

That’s not all for the NBA All-Star Entertainment Series presented by JBL. Before the game, Cirque du Soleil will offer an acrobatic performance, complemented with technology, depicting “the story of a basketball dream.”
