The former Police frontman and 16-time Grammy Award Winner will perform a medley of his classic hits, such as “Every Break You Take” and “Roxanne”  throughout the show, which will broadcast in more than 200 countries and territories and heard in 40 languages.

Former Genesis member Peter Gabriel will also join Sting on stage. The two are currently preparing for their Rock Paper Scissors tour, which starts June 21 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Before the game, performing arts group Cirque du Soleil will perform a mixture of acrobatics, dance and technology to simulate a basketball dream. The 2016 NBA All-Stars will be introduced after the production.

All-Star game coverage will kick off at 8 pm EST on TNT in the U.S. and on Sportsnet ONE and TSN in Canada.
