Musicians Paul Simon and Sting are embarking on a concert tour throughout North America in February and March 2014, and their first stop will be right here in Houston.

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.

Now, Paul Simon and Sting will perform a series of concerts onstage -- together.

The duo has been friends for years, so their collaboration on a tour is a natural fit. At each performance, organizers say audiences will be treated to the unique pleasure of experiencing these two musicians on stage together, in addition to solo performances with their respective bands.

"We are thrilled to be bringing together these iconic artists," said Arthur Fogel, president of Global Touring and chairman of 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."

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