Sting And Peter Gabriel To Tour North America This Summer

If you’re a fan of the solo works of the respective frontmen of The Police and Genesis, today is going to be a good day for you. Yes, Sting and Peter Gabriel announced that they will be playing several North American tour dates this summer, in what is being called the Rock Paper Scissors tour. The two English musicians say they plan to perform several duets on the tour, and the set lists will likely include each of the pair’s most popular songs.
