Sting in concert

Back in November 2013, both Sting and Paul Simon announced they will be embarking on a joint tour beginning in February, 2014. The tour will start out at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas and will continue through February and March with a total of twenty tour dates. They will appear at the Madison Square Garden in New York for two nights on March 3 and 4th. The tour will take them to a few large cities in Canada; Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto.

The Sting and Paul Simon concert tour is dubbed ‘Paul Simon and Sting: On Stage Together’ and fans are eagerly waiting this much anticipated concert.

Sting’s most recent album, his eleventh, ‘The Last Ship‘, is also a musical which will open in June of 2014 in Chicago. The musical is a story about the demise of the shipbuilding industry in the eighties Newcastle.

Paul Simon, the second half of the original duo, Simon & Garfunkel, is one of the most highly acclaimed musicians in the industry. His last album, ‘So Beautiful or So What’ released April 8, 2011, was his highest debut album on the charts, selling over 68,000 copies in the first week and debut at number 4 on the US Billboard 200 chart.

The pair played together at the Robin Hood Foundation benefit back in May of 2013 and at that time found that they were pretty interesting on stage together, and at that point considered a joint tour.

This year’s Globetrotters team roster includes players like Ant, who was the first pick; Big Easy, who shares his nickname with his home town of New Orleans; Bones, who started playing at age 11, Buckets, who’s from a family of 9 brothers and sisters; Bull, who collects tube socks; Cheese, who captained both his high school and college team; Dizzy, who went to his first Harlem Globetrotters game at age eight and went home and started practicing; Firefly, who led his college team through an NCAA tourney; Flight Time, who was in the top four of the TV reality show ‘Amazing Race’; and Moose who is a rookie, just to mention a few.

The Harlem Globetrotters season will be kicking off on December 26, 2013 in Columbus, OH. One of the featured cities will include two appearances in Los Angeles, CA on February 16, 2014. The shows in LA will be at 12:45pm and 5:45pm. Having more than one traveling team, they are able to perform more than 400 live events each year.
