One of the Vancouver radio stations had an "interview" with Stewart Copeland on wed Jan 31st.

I haven't been down to the studios yet, but I find it discouraging that there have been no real setlist reports yet.

I don't think it's a "reunion" for The Eagles. They toured like 3 years ago...

IMO.. I obviously see them doing the grammy's (cuz it was officially announced) but touring I just don't know. I mean all this time Sting has been adamant about not getting back together with Stewart and Andy. Other than money and his career being stale why would he 'lose face' and do this it makes him look foolish. But then again if he didn't do it the media/critics would be all over him..
And their history of not getting along.. i.e. Sting walking out of the studio a few years (i think i read somewhere that is was 2003 or something like that) ago after only 3 days. How in the hell are they going to tour for what..80 dates. I just don't see them surviving it. With his ego.. jeez..

Don't get me wrong I would to see The Police tour.

The Farewell I tour was in 2003. They'll do another one. It's been too long. They also need the money.

And too, why do you think they started numbering their Farewell tours? On the latest DVD, Don said they started numbering the Farewell tours because they keep changing their mind about hitting the road.

So the Eagles aren't done yet.

Here's some news from Yahoo...


Eagles Soar Once More

02/01/2007 9:02 AM, E! Online


Take it easy, Eagles fans. The Hotel California will soon be open for business again.

During a private concert in Las Vegas Saturday, former frontman Don Henley broke the news that, barring any last-minute implosions, the Eagles will, within the next three months, release its first studio album in nearly three decades.

The adult-contempo lovers at the Las Vegas Review-Journal first reported on the recording news after Henley spilled the news during a gig at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

"It's coming out in 60 to 90 days, if we don't kill each other first," Henley told the crowd.

It remains unclear what combination of band members are playing on the forthcoming disc, which doesn't have an official title but is rumored to be named The Long Road to Eden.

Whatever the final roll call is, Henley hinted that the band would follow up the release with another road trip, ending Saturday night's concert by telling his fans, "I'll see you this summer."



I hope it happens!

The incident where Sting walked out of the studio was in July 1986.

All indications show that you will be scrambling to get tickets for this tour in about 3 weeks. I was initially very skeptical, but to many things have happened over the past few weeks for this not to happen, I think. The Grammy award appearance was rumored and is now confirmed. Confirmation on the tour should not come to much later after that. If their smart, they will be putting tickets on sale in February before people make their summer vacation plans.

The latest rumor is that the tour will likely be more like 50 dates spread out over 4 months from May through August.

If it's only 50 dates, then I bet they'll play stadiums almost exclusively.

as much as I like The Police I know one thing for sure I will not pay $200 + for a ticket if that is what the prices are gonna be like which I imagine they will be.

I guess I should clarify.. I meant the seats closer to the stage. I suppose the nose bleed seats will be affordable..

I'm going to use up my American Express rewards points for this show.

I want to try to sit as close as I can.
