Paul Simon and Sting Auckland Concert

Two classic rock icons will be bringing their co-headlining tour to New Zealand early 2015.

The idea for Paul Simon and Sting's "On Stage Together" tour came about at a charity benefit when the two longtime friends performed together for the first time. It's a good fit; both artists are known for exploring world rhythms and for their songwriting and singing talents.

The two musicians will each perform solo sets with their backing bands, as well as perform some of their classic hits together.

PRESS RELEASE: 

Paul Simon & Sting
On Stage Together
Australia and New Zealand 2015

Sting & Paul Simon, two of music’s most renowned and enduring artists, will bring their critically-acclaimed On Stage Together tour to Australia and New Zealand in January and February 2015. 

The tour kicks off Friday, January 30th at Vector Arena in Auckland and will continue on for a seven-date Australian tour.

As long-time friends, the concept for the “On Stage Together” tour originated at the Robin Hood Foundation benefit in 2013 where they performed together for the first time. Both artists, who are known for exploring world rhythms, have pushed the boundaries of popular music and continue to speak to generations of fans. 

As exemplified on their North American tour earlier this year, the concerts in Australia and New Zealand will feature two of music’s most iconic singer/songwriters blending their voices and their bands while performing their best-known songs both together and apart. 

In what was one of the most highly-praised North American concert tours of 2014, media and fans alike were unanimous in their reviews.

“We are thrilled to be bringing the tour to Australia and New Zealand,” said Arthur Fogel, President - Global Touring and Chairman - Global Music, Live Nation.  “The run in North America this year was an incredible success on all levels.
