The concert features two of music’s most iconic singer/songwriters blending their voices and their bands while performing their best-known songs both together and apart. With a set list of over 30 songs the audience was treated to some of the finest musicianship to appear on one stage.
The tour will continue for five weeks throughout North America with concerts in Los Angeles, Anaheim, San Jose, Seattle, Vancouver, St. Paul, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Hershey and Ft. Lauderdale before a final stop in Orlando on March 16, 2014.
As long-time friends, the concept for “On Stage Together” originated when both artists shared the stage at the Robin Hood Foundation benefit last year. As Sting expressed in the interview footage attached, “there was an audible gasp” when they walked on stage together. And as Paul Simon noted, “…while we come from different places, by the time we performed together with a band it became a really interesting musical blend.”
When the tour was announced, Arthur Fogel, President-Global Touring and Chairman – Global Music Live Nation said the following: “We are thrilled to be bringing together these iconic artists. As individual artists, Paul and Sting have had a diverse and unique history, and I suspect the challenge for both of these prolific songwriters will indeed be narrowing down the song choices.”
The 30-plus song set features such favorites as “Boy In The Bubble,” “Fields of Gold,” “Driven To Tears,” “Mother & Child Reunion,” “Desert Rose,” “Every Breath You Take,” “The Boxer,” “Diamonds On The Soles of Her Shoes” and more.
