That sound you hear this morning is '70s and '80s fans losing their minds to the news that two prolific musicians and artists from then have decided to unite under one roof in Dublin for one hell of a concert in 2015. Yes, prepare to hear 'Roxanne' a lot on the radio today as Sting and Paul Simon have announced that they are coming to Dublin's recently renamed 3Arena in April 2015.
Simon and Sting this morning announced a rake of dates for their forthcoming European tour next year, going everywhere from little old Ireland all the way to the Czech Republic (so if you're a megafan and want to follow them across the continent, start your saving now), and will play Dublin on April 7th, 2015.
Having kicked off their combo-performance at the Robin Hood Foundation benefit in 2013, the European tour is set to follow its American predecessors format, with the two singer/songwriters blending their voices and their bands while performing their best-known songs both together and apart.
Featuring such favorites as "Boy In The Bubble," "Fields of Gold," "Driven To Tears," "Mother & Child Reunion," "Desert Rose," "Every Breath You Take," and more, the set and show is said to be "surprising, daring, and rewarding" according to US reviews, so set your standards about yea high.
