Sting and Peter Gabriel to play Harveys Lake Tahoe Summer Music Series
Sting and Peter Gabriel are set to bring their Rock Paper Scissors Tour to Lake Tahoe’s South Shore this summer.
Harveys Lake Tahoe announced Tuesday that the tour will make a stop at the Harveys Outdoor Arena Friday, July 15.
“Having first toured together in the eighties for Amnesty International, Rock Paper Scissors will find Peter Gabriel and Sting performing both separately and together, playing their own songs as well as melding their bands to explore each other’s most celebrated hits,” according to an announcement for the tour stop.
“I’m very happy that we’re taking the chance to experiment this way,” Sting said in the announcement. “I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am.”
“What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen,” added Gabriel.
Harveys presale tickets will be available online from 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 22, through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24. “TOTAL” is the password for the presale.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, Jan. 25.
