Perhaps – no scratch that, definitely – the most unlikely pairing in pop music has been that of British rocker Sting and Jamaican superstar Shaggy. A musical partnership that yielded first the "Don't Make Me Wait" single and then the 4/20 release of the full album 44/876 is now entering its most ambitious phase yet, with news today of a co-headlining tour set for later this year. And this two-month North American trek is set to kick off in South Florida!

Sting and Shaggy headline the Jackie Gleason Theater at the Fillmore in Miami on Saturday, Sept. 15, at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 24.
