According to Stingus, the Police will open the Grammy's show on Feb 11. Also, there are apparently 80 dates booked and the boys are rehearsing 30 songs.

Simon & Gartfunky did a similar thing a couple years ago before announcing their big reunion.

I think after more than twenty years, they have put aside their differences and realize that it's time to give their fans the tour they've been wanting since the late 80s.
I think they're all older and wiser, and Sting has done everything he's set out to do with his solo career.
Even if there still is some hatred there, they are not in their 30s anymore, and the RRHOF reunion showed that they can be civil and still put on a good performance.
ALL that being said, this is still just a rumor, and 80 dates seems like an awful lot.

The initial rumour was 30 dates, but the offers just may be too good to let up.

I think people have forgotten how good a group they were and how they were the biggest act in the world in the early 80's.

Also, Sting is apparently having a bout of severe writers block.

Imagine them opening the Grammy's, and you hear the opening chords and hear Sting singing, "Young teacher, the subject of schoolgirl fantasies....."



That's my favorite Police song.

(a la Homer Simpson) Mmmmmm....The Police on tour.


I hope there's truth to all these rumblings - and that the tickets are A: obtainable without the letting of all my blood, and B: within my budget without my selling some vital organs.

I keep hoping for arenas so I can think about going. I usually don't like nostalgia tours, but I might make an exception for this one.

I can't believe this is actually happening. A few weeks ago I would've laughed at the idea of The Police getting back together, so all of this news is kind of jarring.

I just hope they can pull it off (and not sound like they did at the RnR Hall of Fame ceremony... LOL). They probably can't go back to what they were like at their peak, but if they come close, it'll still be insanely exciting.
