Sting and Paul Simon are set to embark on a North American tour together in 2014.

The rockers will kick-off Paul Simon & Sting: On Stage Together in February.

Announcing the joint tour, Sting tells The New York Times, “Paul and I both share this abiding curiosity about music and where it’s going.

“We don’t really know where this (tour) is going. We don’t really have a clue how this is going to pan out.”

In June, Simon surprised fans at Sting’s concert in Atlantic City, New Jersey, when he joined the former The Police frontman onstage for renditions of Fields of Gold and Simon & Garfunkel’s The Boxer.
