Sting & Peter Gabriel blend like old friends at the Key...

The Peter Gabriel/Sting “Rock Paper Scissors” tour that came to KeyArena on July 21 was an unusual concert. The idea was to merge their bands and songs, and even have each artist sing a few of the other’s hits. In the end, it offered a lot of bang for the buck, and a two-song guest spot by a Seattle legend...

New album out November 11...

57th & 9th. New album out November 11. Sting's manager Martin Kierszenbaum who produced the album says "Most of it was done in an impulsive way. One or two takes. I don't think he's rocked like this since Synchronicity." Sting said "For me, the most important element in all music is surprise. I'll keep throwing curveballs. It's my journey; people are welcome to share it with me..."

Inside Sting's First Rock Album in Decades - How Prince's death, climate change inspired "impulsive" new LP...

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. "I've been up since 5:30. I'm the son of a milkman."

Sting and Peter Gabriel are a perfect blend at the Hollywood Bowl...

Early in their respective careers, Sting and Peter Gabriel seemed to come from parallel universes. Gabriel first gained fame fronting arty and oh-so-serious progressive rock band Genesis, while Sting led the bleach-blond, effervescent ska-pop trio the Police...

Peter Gabriel, Sting are Sledgehammers!

Nostalgia reigns at Lake Tahoe, the scenic and romantic destination resort spot on the California-Nevada border. Sometimes the entertainment here can be more about great memories and less an ethereal thrill of witnessing something superb, unique and contemporary. There was the fat Elvis in 1976 and a raspy Bob Dylan in 2009. However, Peter Gabriel and Sting performed together in Stateline on Friday night in a show that left an everlasting impression on all 7,000 who attended. It was a thrill.

Sting, Peter Gabriel prove to be brilliant teammates...

Sting and Peter Gabriel played Rock Paper Scissors. And guess who came out on top? It was the fans. The two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers delivered nearly three hours of classic material when they brought their Rock Paper Scissors North American Tour to the SAP Center in San Jose on Thursday... This was not a case where two headliner-caliber artists played two distinct sets, separated, of course, by a 30-minute break so fans can go drop more money on beer and T-shirts...

Sting and Peter Gabriel Had Faith in Each Other at Pepsi Center...

Early in Sting and Peter Gabriel’s Pepsi Center show, which was part of their Rock Paper Scissors tour, Gabriel told the audience that the set would be “a little like karaoke night in Denver.” Gabriel’s band, dressed in black with red stripes on parts of their clothing, was the red team while Sting’s band was the blue team. “You can hold out your scores, but we’re going to ignore them, because we’re going to carry on anyway,” Gabriel said...
