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.

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, Peter Gabriel go great together on Summerfest's closing night...

Peter Gabriel and Sting may be longtime friends. But co-headlining Summerfest's closing night Sunday at the Marcus Amphitheater, Gabriel kiddingly implied they were enemies. "We have in fact the red team and the blue team," Gabriel said, joking that the audience had color-coded score cards they could hold up to award each headliner points...

Sting and Peter Gabriel full of synergy at the United Center...

The menacing synths, haunting vocals and hypnotic percussion of Peter Gabriel's "The Rhythm of the Heat" started the evening, the singer stationary, cloaked in shadows behind his keyboard. Several minutes later, Sting took the spotlight, bass in hand, for his peppy "If I Ever Lose My Faith In You," a song that could not have been more dissimilar. But after nearly three hours of performing solo and in tandem Saturday at the United Center, any fleeting concerns that a live pairing of Gabriel and the former Gordon Sumner would be more contrast than synergy had long since been put to rest...

Rock Paper Scissors – Two Englishmen in Quebec via New York and Solsbury Hill...
