Iconic musicians Paul Simon and Sting will collaborate early next year for a North American arena tour that will feature the friends performing together, along with individual sets.

"We are thrilled to be bringing together these iconic artists," Arthur Fogel, President of Global Music for Live Nation, said in a press release. "As individual artists, Paul and Sting have had a diverse and unique history, and I suspect the challenge for both of these prolific songwriters will indeed be narrowing down the song choices."

For each North American concert, Simon and Sting will share the stage for a portion of the show, as well as perform music from their individual discographies with their respective bands.
