Both artists, who are known for their explorations in a wide range of genres, have pushed the boundaries of popular music and continue to speak to generations of fans.
As exemplified on their North American tour earlier this year, the concerts will feature two of music’s most iconic singer/songwriters blending their voices and their bands while performing their best-known songs both together and apart.
“We are thrilled to be bringing the tour to Europe,” said Arthur Fogel, President – Global Touring and Chairman – Global Music, Live Nation. “The run in North America was an incredible success on all levels. These two legendary talents delivered an unforgettable night of music.”
The 30-plus song set features such favorites as “Boy In The Bubble,” “Fields of Gold,” “Driven To Tears,” “Mother & Child Reunion,” “Desert Rose,” “Every Breath You Take,” “The Boxer,” “Diamonds On The Soles of Her Shoes” and more. In what was one of the most highly-praised North American concert tours of 2014, media and fans alike were unanimous in their reviews.
