Archimedes and the Enigmatic Ratio of Pi (π)

Pi (π) is an irrational number. This means it cannot be expressed as a common fraction. Also, π is a transcendental number; that is, it is not the root of any polynomial having rationalcoefficients.

Tour dates were scheduled through November in both the U.S and U.K. and the average ticket price was $66. The amazing thing about this concert tour is that both musicians are dead.
