Paul Simon is a name usually followed by another seasoned musician, Art Garfunkel. But the singer-songwriter is teaming up with an unlikely partner, Sting, for an 18-show tour beginning in February.
The pair plan to announce their North American tour, “Paul Simon & Sting: On Stage Together,” on Tuesday, the New York Times reports. The duo will play 18 shows beginning Feb. 8 through March 16, with additional dates still possible. Tickets go on sale Wednesday on sting.com and paulsimon.com.
The seasoned performers, who once lived in the same Upper West Side building in New York City, said the tour was the result of a musical exploration and not an entreaty from industry executives.
