Simon and Sting have been longtime friends, and first performed together last year at a Robin Hood Foundation benefit in New York last year, where they performed Paul’s Simon & Garfunkel classic ‘The Boxer’ and Sting’s ‘Fields Of Gold.’

The setlist for the new show will include staples from each of the artists’ repertoires, including ‘Every Breath You Take,’ ‘Boy In The Bubble,’ ‘Driven To Tears’ and ‘Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes.’ The band for the shows includes original E Street Band keyboard player David Sancious.

The Hollywood Reporter described the US show as “one of the most surprising, daring and rewarding double bills.” Rolling Stone, in its review of the Madison Square Garden date, enthused: “The show was meticulously rehearsed, the setlist barely changes from night-to-night and the backing musicians, some of the best in the business, are never going to miss a single note.”
