Iconic British rockers Sting and Peter Gabriel will swing by metro Detroit this summer as they unite for a once-in-a-lifetime concert tour.
Tickets go on sale beginning Monday, Jan. 25, for the Rock Paper Scissors tour, which will kick off June 21, 2016, in Columbus, Ohio. The pair will be in our area just a few days later, performing Thursday, June 30 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
Tickets for the Palace show go on sale Monday, Feb. 1 at 10 a.m.
Having first toured together in the eighties, 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.
Both performers are excited to do something a little different.
“I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am,” said Sting.
“What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen,” Gabriel added.
