Paul Simon and Sting: Better together? Rock legends, SMC highlight upcoming Seattle-area concerts

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Two rock legends have announced a joint venture that includes a Seattle date early next year. Paul Simon and Sting unveiled an 18-date North American tour that kicks off February 8 in Houston, then lands at Key Arena on February 19. 'On Stage Together' will showcase each artist in individual sets with full bands and will also feature collaborative numbers, giving audiences a rare opportunity to see these icons duet on their well-respected portfolios of work. Tickets for the performance here go on sale to the general public on November 18, though fans can purchase them starting November 12 through each artist's official website, www.paulsimon.com and www.sting.com. American Express cardholders are eligible to buy tickets before they go on sale to the general public. For more information, go to www.simonandstingtour.com.

HO, HO, HO!
It's getting to be Santa time, and there's no better way to welcome the bearded Christmas figure from the North Pole than with a performance by the Seattle Men's Chorus. The local ensemble will present eight Seattle concerts, plus one show each in Tacoma and Everett, from November 30 through December 22, opening with back-to-back appearances at Benaroya Hall (November 30 and December 1) with special guest Levi Kreis, who earned a Tony Award in 2010 for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his role in Million Dollar Quartet. The remaining dates (December 8-9, 15-16, and 22) will not include Kreis. SMC is partnering with Lifelong AIDS Alliance for a Holiday Food Drive at Benaroya Hall, asking ticketholders to bring nonperishable food items that will be donated to the Alliance's Chicken Soup Brigade program. Tickets for the Seattle concerts range from $28 to $78, while the Everett tickets are between $23 and $43, and Tacoma tickets go for $44 to $59. Tickets for Seattle and Everett can be purchased at www.SeattleMensChorus.org, and for Tacoma go to www.BroadwayCenter.org.

DON'T SNOOZE ON THIS ONE
Speaking of Tony Award winners, Spring Awakening co-creator Duncan Sheik is scheduled to return to the Emerald City for a February 10 performance at The Triple Door. This marks the first appearance of the singer-songwriter, also a Grammy winner, in Seattle in several years. His previous trip to the Northwest was canceled due to personal issues. Sheik, who has interviewed with SGN at least twice, is currently arranging the music for the stage adaptation of American Psycho and is lending his efforts to the film version of Spring Awakening, set for a 2014 theatrical release. For Duncan Sheik show reservations, visit www.thetripledoor.net.

PRESIDENTIAL VISIT
Other newly announced concerts include singer-songwriter Cat Power on November 28 (The Showbox Market), local rock trio The Presidents of the United States of America on February 15 (The Showbox Market), a cappella group Pentatonix on February 20 (Paramount Theatre), Grammy-winning jazz vocalist Diana Krall on April 16 (Paramount Theatre), alternative duo We Are Scientists on May 3 (The Crocodile) and '80s favorite Christopher Cross on May 15 (Snoqualmie Casino).
