Sting and Peter Gabriel will tour together in the US on a tour they have dubbed the "The Rock Paper Scissors tour".
The live dates will see Sting and Gabriel perform solo sets and also as a duo. Each night will see one half of the pair perform a solo set with the decision as to who that is decided on the night.
Introducing the concept of the tour in a video you can see below, Sting says: "We will start together. We’ll do two songs together, and then we’ll choose who will do a set on their own, 15/ 20 minutes, and then we’ll come together again.”
At present, the tour will only include dates in North America. The jaunt begins on June 21 at the Nationwide Arena on Columbus, Ohio and ends in Edmonton, Alberta on July 24.If someone hits a drum too loud, it could possibly wake me up. And I like Sting and I like Peter Gabriel, but. What were we talking about?
Oh, right. If you're going to see them in Lake Tahoe, it's $225 for the good seats. Even though that's insane, it's cheap because these guys are still considered famous. I'm not saying they won't pick up acoustic guitars and put everyone to sleep instantly, but it could happen.
God, I hope he plays a nine minute slow version of Fragile on a mandolin while Peter shushes the crowd with a well timed triangle solo.
