MANILA — Rock legend Sting's Manila concert set on Oct. 2 has been cancelled, Ovation Productions announced Saturday, citing a "scheduling conflict."

"We regretfully announce that Sting’s concert scheduled for October 2, 2019 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum is unfortunately canceled due to scheduling conflicts," the company said.

Ovation Productions was one of the producers of the show, along with Cherrytree Music Company and Live Nation.

The October 2 concert was supposed to be part of the Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter's ongoing tour called "Sting: My Songs."

Tickets went on sale last July 3, with prices ranging from P2,640 to P20,595. Ovation Productions said the process for refunds would be posted on its pages "soon."

Sting last performed in Manila in 2012 as part of his “Back to Bass” world tour.
