In an announcement of epic proportions, heavy-hitting music legends Sting and Paul Simon confirmed on Nov. 5 that they’ll join forces for the 2014 On Stage Together Tour. Eighteen cities have been included in the initial tour dates, which kick off Feb. 8 at the Toyota Center in Houston. The duo also will stop in Denver (Feb. 11), Vancouver (Feb. 20), Chicago (Feb. 25), Philadelphia (March 7), and more before closing the tour on March 16 in Orlando.
At every stop, each artist will perform his own solo set of songs before collaborating for a combined set. It won’t be the first time the two legends have shared a stage, though—in the past year the duo performed together at a benefit concert, and Simon appeared as a special guest on Sting’s Back to Bass Tour in June.
Sting will be appearing on the tour just months after the release of his 2013 album “The Last Ship.” Simon hasn’t released any new albums recently, but a full 15-disc collection of his solo work—including both studio and live albums—was released on Oct. 15.

In other music news, Rolling Stone also announced Nov. 5 that David Crosby plans to release his first solo album in more than 20 years in early 2014. Entitled “Croz,” the album is scheduled to drop on Jan. 28, which also marks the first date of the Hall of Fame inductee’s brief U.S. tour that will stop in New York (Jan. 28, 29, 31), Vienna, Va. (Feb. 3-4), Chicago (Feb. 8-9), San Francisco (Feb. 20-21), and Los Angeles (Feb. 23-25). The upcoming tour will feature a full-length recital of the new album, followed by a selection of hits from previous solo work and his time with The Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
In a similar classic rock vein, The Eagles—which have been on tour since July—continue to add new dates to the ongoing trek. Most recently, a second date was added in San Jose, Calif. (Jan. 31), but the group also introduced two nights in Las Vegas (Feb. 15-16), and new dates in Houston (Feb. 21), New Orleans (Feb. 23), and Washington, D.C. (March 1), among many others. Check out the band in action in the video below, and a comprehensive selection of Eagles concert tickets and tour dates HERE.
The premier piano men of rock—Billy Joel and Elton John—also will be appearing on stage in the next few months. Joel recently confirmed a massive New Year’s Eve concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and a couple of January performances as well, sparking rumors a full-fledged arena tour may be in the works. Meanwhile, John is currently completing the U.S. leg of The Diving Board Tour. Dates stretch through Dec. 4, when he’ll play back-to-back nights at Madison Square Garden in New York. The rocker also will visit Canada in early February with dates in Montreal (Feb. 5) and Toronto (Feb. 6).
