Just Announced: Paul Simon and Sting co-headlining the Wells Fargo Center on 3/7 and Giant Center in Harrisburg on 3/9

Screen Shot 2013-11-04 at 6.12.24 PMPaul Simon and Sting, two musical titans, will tour the country next year, stopping at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on March 7th and the Giant Center in Harrisburg on March 9th. According to this article in yesterday’s New York Times, the two singer-songwriters will be backed up by their respective bands on the tour. According to the Times, “the musicians said that they were as surprised as anyone to find themselves on the same bill.”

“Paul and I both share this abiding curiosity about music and where it’s going,” Sting said. “We don’t really know where this is going. We don’t really have a clue how this is going to pan out.” Audiences got an early taste of the potential collaboration when Mr. Simon and Sting appeared together in May at a benefit for the Robin Hood Foundation, where they performed acoustic versions of “The Boxer” and “Fields of Gold.” “After we finished it,” Mr. Simon said of that set, “we both looked at each other and said: ‘Wow. That’s pretty interesting.’ ”

Tickets to the Paul Simon & Sting: On Stage Together tour go on sale to the public on Tuesday, November 12th. Below, watch Sting and Simon perform “The Boxer” from a June, 2013 performance at The Borgata.
