Sting & Peter Gabriel - Rock Paper Scissors - 19 City Tour Kicks off June 21st in Columbus, OH...

January 19, 2016

Two of music’s most iconic artists - Sting and Peter Gabriel - will unite this summer for a once in a lifetime concert tour. Rock Paper Scissors, produced by Live Nation Global Touring, will visit select North American cities this June and July (complete itinerary below).

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.

"I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am." - Sting

"What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen." - Peter Gabriel

Had the opportunity to see Sting a year ago at the American Airlines Center in Dallas as part of the College Football Championship Playoff Playlist Live! He is just incredibly amazing! Scored tickets for the Columbus show. Can't wait! Love STING forever

My first concert since becoming deaf on
My two favorite artists of all time. This will be my first concert since losing my hearing on my right side in October of last year! Hearing schmearing...... I don't care how it will sound now, I have my tickets and I'm on Cloud 9!!!!!!! Could not start 2016 off any better than this announcement!

Masters at Work and Play
Had the pleasure of doing a sound check and taking in the show Sting did with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in Toronto. Can still hear it. Peter and Sting together could be one of the best shows out there. Showing my age having seen Peter with Genesis and Sting with the Police back when we were all just kids. Take me back to those days my friends. Larry

Superb. Looking forward to the synergy of these two talented gentlemen and their collaborating musicians. What a summer show to look forward to on a very cold Wisconsin day.

I saw Sting & Paul Simon when they swung through Vancouver. Would love to see Sting & Peter Gabriel in Seattle. I have seen Sting every time he or the Police have come to town except the tour with Annie Lennox which I regret enormously. Huge fan since the early '80s. Still have all my tour memorabilia.

Saw Sting with Paul Simon a year ago in New Plymouth- just an amazing show. And for sure will see Peter & Sting this year as well. Best concert hook-up imaginable. Good luck on tour - stay safe & healthy; Kia Kaha & Aloha ‼

No San Diego?
I bought my husband tickets to see Sting several years ago at a small venue in San Diego. He was so excited!!! Then, the concert was canceled! He was so disappointed. Now another San Diego concert this year. I give up.
