WATCH Sting and Peter Gabriel Announce New Tour

Sting and Peter Gabriel are teaming up for a summer tour.

The month-long trek, dubbed “Rock Paper Scissors,” will launch in Columbus, Ohio, June 21. It will conclude a little over a month later, in Edmonton, Canada.

Sting and Gabriel will perform both separately and together at the shows. Sting says in a statement, “I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am.”

Gabriel notes, “What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen.”

The two previously toured together in the 1980s, for Amnesty International.

Tickets go on sale starting Jan. 25 and Feb. 1. Check for more information.
