A press release notes that each artist will have the opportunity to perform their own material, in addition to "melding their bands to explore each other's most celebrated hits."
"I'm very happy that we're taking the chance to experiment this way," Sting said in a statement. "I think people will be intrigued, I certainly am."
Gabriel added, "What intrigues me is that you get a good bunch of musicians together and interesting things will happen."
