HOUSTON -- Paul Simon and Sting, two of music’s most renowned and enduring artists, will embark on a concert tour throughout North America. The duo will launch their tour in Houston in Feb. 2014.

Both of these artists have explored world rhythms and pushed the boundaries of popular music, and through their music, continue to speak to generations of fans.

As friends for many years, their collaboration on a tour is a natural fit. At each performance, audiences will be treated to the unique pleasure of experiencing these two innovative musicians, in addition to solo performances with their respective bands, in what will surely be one of the most highly-anticipated concert events of 2014.

“We are thrilled to be bringing together these iconic artists,” said Arthur Fogel, President - Global Touring and Chairman - Global Music, Live Nation. “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.”

Paul Simon & Sting: On Stage Together is coming to the Toyota Center on Sat., Feb. 8.

The artists’ fans will have access to a pre-sale through their respective official websites starting Wed., Nov. 6 at 10 a.m. American Express card members will have an opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public.

Tickets for the Houston show will go on sale Monday, Nov. 18 at 10a.m. They will be available at www.livenation.com, www.houstontoyotacenter.com, by phone at 1-866-4-HOUTIX or most area Randall's stores.
