Sting and Paul Simon Announce Co-Headline Show

Monday 30th June, 2014 11:47AM

The classic rock superduo of Sting and Paul Simon are bringing their co-headline show to the Antipodes for a seven-date jaunt next year. The two monumental musicians have been touring together off-and-on for the last few months in a venture they call their "little experiment". The shows so far have seen the veterans (with the support of an enormous backing band) weave their catalogues together to play a series of duets and solo songs including '50 Ways To Leave Your Lover' and 'Every Breathe You Take'. The pair will be gracing New Zealand with one show in Auckland, before heading to Australia for the rest of the tour. Here's the show details...

PAUL SIMON & STING ON STAGE TOGETHER
AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND 2015

June 30, 2014 - Live Nation Global Touring announced today that Sting & Paul Simon, two of music’s most renowned and enduring artists, will bring their critically-acclaimed On Stage Together tour to Australia and New Zealand in January and February 2015.

The tour kicks off Friday, January 30th at Vector Arena in Auckland and will continue on for a seven-date Australian tour.

As long-time friends, the concept for the “On Stage Together” tour originated at the Robin Hood Foundation benefit in 2013 where they performed together for the first time. Both artists, who are known for exploring world rhythms, have pushed the boundaries of popular music and continue to speak to generations of fans.

As exemplified on their North American tour earlier this year, the concerts in Australia and New Zealand will feature two of music’s most iconic singer/songwriters blending their voices and their bands while performing their best-known songs both together and apart.

In what was one of the most highly-praised North American concert tours of 2014, media and fans alike were unanimous in their reviews.
