Sting and Peter Gabriel together in Seattle this summer

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

The last time Sting played in Seattle was a dual performance with Paul Simon in 2014. This summer he's appearing with another legend, Peter Gabriel. The two artists announced a joint outing with a stop here on July 21, the only Northwest date on their entire tour, as they are not performing in either Portland or Vancouver. Not only have both men had successful solo careers, but each rose to stardom by fronting classic rock bands with equally impressive catalogs, The Police (Sting) and Genesis (Gabriel). No immediate information was provided as to whether they'll just play individual sets, or whether they'll collaborate on stage, but I anticipate Sting followers will hear songs like 'Roxanne,' 'Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic,' 'If I Ever Lose My Faith in You' and 'Fragile,' while Gabriel faithful will probably be treated to 'Solsbury Hill,' 'Sledgehammer,' 'Big Time' and my personal favorite, 'Shock the Monkey.' Tickets for the 'Rock Paper Scissors' tour at Key Arena go on sale February 1 (10 a.m.), but fans have access to pre-sale tickets right now through each artist's respective official websites, sting.com and petergabriel.com.

Have you seen Love & Mercy yet? Put it in your Netflix queue now! The 2015 film centers on the life of Beach Boys' original member Brian Wilson, his success, and his experimentation with drugs and musical sounds, as well as his struggles with schizoaffective disorder that led to his suffering of mental abuse at the hands of a former therapist, which nearly ended his life. The good news is that Wilson survived, even returning to great form on a recent string of solo albums, but he's going back to the where it began by embarking on a tour later this year that will showcase his most acclaimed work. 'Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds' will feature the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer performing the landmark album in its entirety, as part of a 50th anniversary commemoration, along with rare cuts and greatest hits; this is the last time fans will be able to hear Pet Sounds played live in its entirety. The Seattle show is set for October 8 at the Paramount Theatre with tickets on sale now through stgpresents.org.

More new shows to report. The Watershed Festival is once again being staged at The Gorge on back-to-back weekends, July 29-31 and August 5-7, with performances by Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Keith Urban, Merle Haggard, Kacey Musgraves, David Nail, Brothers Osborne, Brett Eldredge, Travis Tritt and many more. In its fifth year, Watershed has become one of North America's premiere country music events. A second concert for Steve Martin and Martin Short has been added at the Paramount Theatre on July 23. Most people know these guys for being comedians, but Martin is a Grammy-winning folk artist and Short is a Tony Award-winning showman with a terrific voice. And for longtime electronic listeners, Peter Hook is coming through Seattle again, but this time he's promising to play music from Joy Division and New Order's legendary album Substance with backup band The Light; the concert is set for November 3 at The Showbox Market.

Remember when I told you to hang onto your Janet Jackson concert tickets? That was for a reason, she's coming to Seattle after all. The pop/R&B mega star will now perform July 5 at Key Arena, rescheduling her canceled appearance from January 13 due to surgery, which forced her to initially postpone all remaining dates on her 'Unbreakable World Tour' and then rearrange them on her itinerary. The show is expected to feature some of Jackson's biggest hits of her long career. The tickets for the January concert are good for the July performance; to buy new tickets, go to LiveNation.com.

Pearl Jam and band manager Kelly Curtis donated $125,000 to the Flint, Michigan contaminated water crisis, plus collected an additional $175,000 from close friends and partners. Monetary donations will first be used for the purchase of water filters, bottled water, emergency support services and prevention efforts in Flint. One hundred percent of the proceeds are being donated from the Seattle rock group to the cause and no administration fees are attached. If fans would like to contribute to Flint, go to www.crowdrise.com/pearljam.

Finally, I'm trying to schedule an interview with Galantis, who are headed to the Emerald City for a sold out gig at The Showbox SoDo on March 2. Fingers crossed we get something on the books soon, so be on the lookout for that next month.
