Chances are you've never heard Sting or The Police hits quite like this.

The musician will be touring North America this summer with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, The Chicago Tribune's Greg Kot reported.

Chicago area performances will take place at Ravinia Festival in Highland Park on July 17-18.

According to Kot, Sting was inspired to work in the neo-classical realm following a 2009 private concert with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Tickets will go on sale April 22 at www.ravinia.org.
