Paul Simon and Sting: On Stage Together - 2014

Trying to figure out if this will be good or not. According to them, they have great chemistry. Either way, I'm interested.



Sting and Paul Simon to tour North America together in 2014
By Nick Catucci on Nov 4, 2013 at 5:55PM

It’s a bromance we never saw coming: Paul Simon and Sting will embark on a tour of North America together early next year.

The two, who spilled the news to The New York Times ahead of tomorrow’s official announcement, show plenty of chemistry in the article, teasing each other and fondly recalling their first gig together, at a fundraiser this spring for the Robin Hood Foundation. “After we finished [the set],” Simon tells the Times, “we both looked at each other and said: ‘Wow. That’s pretty interesting.’ ”

“Paul Simon and Sting: On Stage Together” will kick off in February, and feature the two playing their hits in combination and on their own. Tickets go on sale a week from tomorrow.

Sting played at the ACL theater here in town last weekend as part of the Formula 1 fest. I was excited to be able to get into the site when they first stated selling tickets - until I saw they were $750 a seat.

These guys made some of my favorite tunes.... a LONG time ago. I'd go to this for free. The latest Sting album is unlistenable.

Perhaps, but the last two Simon albums are easily his best work since "Graceland".

This is a babysitter's dream. All those housewives together in one building.

Agree on both counts. Couldn't believe what I was hearing on that new Sting record. It was so awful.

Here's the tour website. No Vegas shows, surprisingly.
