Sting and Peter Gabriel are going on the road together this summer, teaming up for a run of co-headlining dates they’ve called the Rock Paper Scissors tour.

During the shows, which begin June 21 in Columbus, Ohio, and continue through July 24 in Edmonton, the two will, according to a press release, be “performing both separately and together, playing their own songs as well as melding their bands to explore each other’s most celebrated hits.” The tour reunites a pair of artists who’ve performed together extensively in the past, most notably during the Human Rights Now! shows they were part of on behalf of Amnesty International in the ’80s.

“I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way. I think people will be intrigued,” said Sting. “I certainly am.” Added Gabriel, “What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen.”

Ticket pre-sales are scheduled to begin Jan. 20 at the artists’ websites, with special access opening up to Citi and American Express cardmembers the following day. Public sales will open Jan. 25 via Live Nation.
