The NBA All-Star game just got more interesting!

Grammy Award-winning singer Sting, 64, will grace the stage for the half-time show during the NBA All-Star Entertainment Series presented by JBL, PEOPLE can confirm.

But the surprises don’t stop there. Prior to tipoff, as the all-stars are being introduced, Cirque du Soleil performers will entertain the crowd with “a captivating performance blending together acrobatics, dance and technology illustrating the story of a basketball dream.”

Slowly but surely, news about the NBA All-Star weekend – to be held in Toronto – has been revealed.

A few weeks ago, PEOPLE reported that rapper Drake and comedian Kevin Hart will be participating in the Celebrity All-Star Game as coaches – a perfect position for Hart, as he announced after last year’s game that he was retiring from the court.

“That little girl embarrassed me on live television, ” the Ride Along 2 star said about his loss to Little Leaguer extraordinaire Mo’Ne Davis. “It’s only going to get worse if I keep going back. I don’t want to see what’s going to happen next.”

NBA All Star weekend is Feb. 12-14, with the All-Star game airing the 14th at 8:30 p.m. ET.
