Two of the most iconic names in the music industry are joining forces this summer for a once in a lifetime concert tour. Sting and Peter Gabriel headline the month-long “Rock Paper Scissors Tour,” which kicks off on June 21 in Columbus, Ohio and concludes on July 24 in Edmonton.
Having first toured together in the ’80s in support of Amnesty International, the 19-city tour will have the two performing both separately and together, playing their own songs as well as melding their bands to explore each other’s most celebrated hits.
“I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way,” Sting said in a statement. “I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am.”
“What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen,” Gabriel added.
