Sting and Peter Gabriel will travel North America this June and July with the Rock Paper Scissors Tour.

Having first toured together in the eighties for Amnesty International, Rock Paper Scissors will find Peter Gabriel and Sting performing both separately and together, playing their own songs as well as melding their bands to explore each other’s most celebrated hits.

Sting said of the tour, “I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am.”

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

Tickets for Rock Paper Scissors will go on sale beginning January 25th. The artists’ fans will have access to a pre-sale through their respective official websites, starting Wednesday, January 20th (time frames vary).
