LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Sting is trading “Fields of Gold” for a court of all-stars.

The Grammy-winning artist known for hits like “Roxanne” and “Desert Rose” will perform the halftime show at the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 14 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

Cirque du Soleil will perform a routine before the game that illustrates “the story of a basketball dream.”

Actor-rapper Drake and actor-comedian Kevin Hart will serve as coaches for the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Feb. 12.

Ariana Grande performed at last year’s NBA All-Star halftime show at Madison Square Garden in New York, while Earth, Wind and Fire, Janelle Monae and several jazz musicians teamed up for the halftime show at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans in 2014.
