Sting and Peter Gabriel will team up this summer for a joint tour that will visit the Palace of Auburn Hills June 30, tour officials announced Tuesday.

Recording artist Sting performs onstage at A+E Networks "Shining A Light" concert at The Shrine Auditorium on November 18, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 1. Prices are not yet announced, but tickets for the pair’s shows in other cities range from about $40 to $250.

The tour is being dubbed “Rock Paper Scissors,” and will find the two living legends performing both separately and together, as well as bringing their own bands together to “explore each other’s most celebrated hits,” according to a tour release.

Peter Gabriel performs onstage at the 29th Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony at Barclays Center of Brooklyn on April 10, 2014 in New York City.

The tour marks a reprise of 64-year-old Sting and 65-year-old Gabriel’s tour together in the 1980s, when they hit the road in support of Amnesty International.

The 19-date outing launches June 21 in Columbus, Ohio, and wraps July 24 in Edmonton.
