The Newton Theatre presents Andy Summers of the Police

(NEWTON, NJ) -- Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Andy Summers, will bring his multi-media show, The Cracked Lens and a Missing String, to The Newton Theatre on Saturday June 1, 2024 at 8:00pm. Best known for his work with The Police, Andy Summers has enthralled music fans with his unique talent since entering the music scene in the late 1960s.

Since picking up a guitar at the age of thirteen, Andy has made his mark as an essential component of The Police, as a solo artist, and as a writer, photographer, composer, and producer.

Despite the demands of his music career Andy has also established himself as a writer and photographer with a number of books, essays and several photography collections. His works include Throb, Light Strings, Desirer Walks the Street, I’ll Be Watching You: Inside the Police, and A Certain Strangeness. Along with these published editions, Andy has held around fifty exhibitions across the world. In 2019 the Pavilion Populaire Montpellier France staged a three-month retrospective A Certain Strangeness which broke all attendance records and was later transferred to the Bonnafanten Museum Maastricht in The Netherlands for a further six months.

After the break-up of the Police in 1984, leaving a legacy as the number one band in the world for several years and one of the biggest selling bands of all time, Andy moved into his own career of nonstop creative output that has embraced many solo recordings, books, photo exhibitions, tours, film and composing. To date he has recorded fourteen solo albums.

Tickets range from $49-$69 and are available for purchase online starting Friday, February 9, 2024 at 10:00am.  The Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, New Jersey.
