Sting says the tour with Peter Gabriel set for later this year will be similar to one with Paul Simon about a year ago.
According to Sting, ”We worked together … in the 80s on two big world tours, so we knew we got on. We like each other’s music and I suggested the idea to Peter and eventually he acquiesced after a bit of arm twisting.”
Sting, 64, says he and Gabriel, 65, will perform each other’s songs, joking they’ll make the decisions by playing the game ”Rock, Paper, Scissors,” also the name of the tour.
It kicks off June 21 in Columbus, Ohio.
The 18 other stops include five in Canada; Toronto June 29, Montreal July 5, Quebec City July 7, Calgary July 23 and Edmonton July 24 – the final stop.
