Sting, Peter Gabriel announce joint summer tour



Sting and Peter Gabriel have announced a slate of summer dates around the U.S. and Canada to be dubbed the Rock Paper Scissors Tour. (I’m assuming the name comes because that’s how they’ll decide each night who will open?)

Sadly, no Florida dates are included. Really no Southeastern dates at all. (Granted, avoiding Florida is the summer is a smart move for any UK artist. You can be an Englishman in New York, but not a Brit in Boca Rotan when the temps hit 97.)

According to Gabriel’s official website, “fans can expect the two artists to be delving into each other’s catalogues to choose songs to perform together and will be doing their own solo slots.”
