Sting is trading “Fields of Gold” for a court of all-stars.

The Grammy-winning artist 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.”

Earlier this month, organizers announced Toronto rapper Drake will coach Canada’s team at the NBA all-star celebrity game on Feb. 12 at the Ricoh Coliseum.

The Canuck team includes two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash and Toronto Blue Jays all-star right-fielder Jose Bautista.

Comedy star Kevin Hart will coach the U.S. team, which includes actors Michael B. Jordan and Jason Sudeikis.
