Sting and Paul Simon Rehearsing For Upcoming Tour
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.21.2014



In an interview with Billboard, Sting revealed that he and Paul Simon are currently rehearsing for a tour they're going to do together, which was Simon's idea. Here are highlights:

On his opinion of Paul Simon: "He's the master. If I ever wanted to emulate a literary and literate songwriter, then Paul Simon would be the person I would go to."

On singing Simon and Garfunkel songs: "Paul had a long partnership with Art Garfunkel for many, many years, and it's not my job to impersonate Art. He has one of the most iconic, beautiful voices in the history of rock `n' roll. But my job is to interpret and honor the notes and the lyrics that have been written, and I will be me. But I'm delighted to sing songs from that canon."

On plans for the show: "It may evolve into a big bash, sort of battle of the bands, if you like. With musicians of that caliber, when you stick them on the same stage, they all raise their game, and there's a little bit of competitive spirit, but a great deal of understanding and sensitivity. I think it's going to be fantastic."
