Sting and Peter Gabriel, two of the most successful musicians of the '70s and '80s, have announced co-headlining Rock Paper Scissors 2016 tour dates. At this time, 19 concerts are scheduled for North America, which are being produced by Live Nation Global Touring.
For these shows, the two artists will be performing their catalog of songs separately and together. A statement on Peter Gabriel's official website explains what fans can expect at the shows:
“I had a successful tour with Paul Simon, who is someone else I admire greatly, and that worked so well I thought I’d like to do this again… who could I tour with? And then I thought of Peter because we’ve known each other for so long” – Sting
“What intrigues me is that when you get a good bunch of musicians together then interesting things will happen if they are allowed to” – Peter Gabriel
This isn't the first time Sting and Peter Gabriel toured together. In 1988, they performed six benefit concerts together called A Conspiracy of Hope, which also included U2, Bryan Adams, Lou Reed, Joan Baez, and The Neville Brothers. In the same year, they were part of the Human Rights Now! tour, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and also featured Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Tracy Chapman, Youssou N'Dour, and local artists from each area they performed in.
