'Paul Simon and Sting: On Stage Together' 2014 Tour Announced
|Nov 05 2013|
Music icons Paul Simon and Sting have announced they will launch a North American tour beginning February 8, 2014 in Houston, TX, continuing through March 16 with stops in New York City, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Washington, DC and Orlando. Dubbed "Paul Simon & Sting: On Stage Together," the two musicians plan to perform some of their biggest hits individually and as a duo with each singer-songwriter bringing along their respective bands on the tour. The artists are friends from back-in-the-day when they were neighbors in the same Upper West Side apartment building in New York City. They performed together in May at a benefit for the Robin Hood Foundation, offering up acoustic versions of their classics "The Boxer" and "Fields of Gold." Paul says, "After we finished it, we both looked at each other and said: ‘Wow. That's pretty interesting.' " Sting adds, "Paul and I both share this abiding curiosity about music and where it's going. We don't really know where this is going. We don't really have a clue how this is going to pan out." The tour includes stops in 18 cities to date with pre-sale tickets available via each artists website, sting.com and paulsimon.com, beginning Wednesday, November 6 at 10am local time. Tickets for the general public will go on sale beginning Tuesday, November 12.
