We’re all winners in Sting and Peter Gabriel’s musical version of Rock Paper Scissors. It’s the name of their tour, though the two British icons didn’t actually play the game during Sunday’s stop at Rexall Place.

It's a perfect Saturday morning, but Sting, unshaven and scruffy, is lying on a couch in a darkened New York studio, taking a nap before starting work for the day. He's still recovering from playing New York's Jones Beach Theater last night, the third date of his co-headlining summer tour with Peter Gabriel. "That was a workout," he says.
