Sting and Peter Gabriel announce joint Rock Paper Scissors Tour

Thursday, 21 January 2016

Sting and Peter Gabriel are doing something new and exciting, they are joining forces this summer for a month long co-headlining tour of North America titled The Rock Paper Scissors Tour. Instead of just performing their own songs, they will also explore each other’s music, both separately and together.

The 19 date tour will begin on June 21st at Columbus, Ohio’s Nationwide Arena and then move around the continent, ending on July 24th in Edmonton, Alberta. The last time the pair toured together was in the eighties as support of Amnesty International. Sting did a similar joint tour in 2014 with Paul Simon.

“What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen,” Gabriel said in a statement. Added Sting, “I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am.”
