Sting And Paul Simon To Announce 18 Shows Together

Legendary rockers Paul Simon and Sting will announce an 18-date tour tomorrow according to a report from the New York Times. The Times report states that the shows will run from February 8 until March 16, with additional dates expected. (UPDATE: The dates have been announced - see below).

The two will perform songs from their repertoires individually and as a duo. “Paul and I both share this abiding curiosity about music and where it’s going,” Sting told the Times. “We don’t really know where this is going. We don’t really have a clue how this is going to pan out.”

Both singers started off in iconic bands (The Police and Simon and Garfunkel) and went on to achieve critical and commercial success as solo artists. The Times mentions the pair will play Madison Square Garden on March 4, with tickets available via pre-sales on the artists' websites on Wednesday followed by a general onsale for most shows starting next Tuesday. We'll update this post with the actual dates when they are announced.
