What a combo! I mean, these two have done all there is to do in music over a combined five decades. Talent and staying power. They have both done it solo and while being part of a group. Sold millions of records, won awards, critical acclaim, and sold out world tours. Now they come together for a power combo world tour.
Both are talented songwriters, but have gone through their careers differently. Paul Simon is pure New York and has always looked like he just got out of bed with all his rumpled everyman clothes whereas Sting has always projected that sexy, lithe European aura. Many are looking forward to seeing how these two opposites will play off each other on stage.
Backed by bands the two will perform mini sets of their own then come together to sing some of their hits together. Will Sting’s notoriously large ego allow him to take backstage (or even sidestage) with Paul Simon? How will their different voices work together? Will folk and rock reggae divide the crowd or bring them together? Plenty of questions and only these two can provide the answers.
