Paul touring with Sting in 2014?

from Bodo , 2013-07-17

A usually very well informed source brought to our eyes that the ´guest´ on Paul Simons next tour is Sting.

Paul recently appeared as a guest on a Sting concert and they sang each others songs. Sting was joking that they are forming a new band named ´Simon and Stingfunkel´

While until that recent appearance most of us had no idea of a Simon-Sting connection I remember one story. Both artists had the same yoga teach 10-15 years ago (maybe till today?) - and both appeared on tracks of the yoga teachers album River Of The Soul. His name is Danny Paradise

So what can we expect from that tour? Personally I doubt that Sting will only be a guest for two or 3 songs, it might be a 2-headliner tour, each of them playing their own set and a shared set in the middle (like the Bob-Paul tour in 1999).

from Bodo , 2013-07-19

Tour plans for 2014 are developing, it will be at least a 2-3 months tour leg. Questions might be: Where? Maybe USA as Paul toured Europe in 2012 and Asia in 2013.
In the meantime read that nice interview with a local resident from Bethlehem
