Sting and Peter Gabriel announce co-headlining summer tour

The 'Rock Paper Scissors' tour will run through 19 cities this summer.

Add another listing to your major summer tour schedule. Peter Gabriel and Sting are heading out on the road together, stopping by 19 North American cities starting June 21 in Columbus, Ohio.

The pair first toured together in the ’80s as part of Amnesty International’s Human Rights Now tour. This time around, the musicians will play separate sets but a release says Sting and Gabriel will “meld their bands to explore each other’s most celebrated hits” as well.

“I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am,” Sting says in a release.

Gabriel echoes the sentiment: “What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen.”

Tickets go on sale Jan. 25 and can be found at or the artists’ websites.
