Music legends Sting and Paul Simon will blend their voices and their bands when they tour Australia together next year.
The old friends will sing each other’s hit songs at arenas and wineries across the country in February as part of their successful double-bill, On Stage Together.
Sting, 62, and Simon, 72, earned fantastic reviews for their US leg of the tour this year, which they did as an experiment after first playing together at a New York charity event in 2013.
The pair, who’ve been good friends for decades, and lived in the same New York apartment block for more than 20 years, will precede their Down Under tour with a show in Auckland in January.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public on July 7 at 10am.
