So far only one show in Montreal actually which is surprising given how fast it has soldout, as well as how slow the site distributing tickets was. There is space on the 26th for a concert in Montreal, but as of right now, they have not added anything yet which seems unusual.

Vancouver tickets went so quickly, but they may wait to see how Seattle sales, before adding a second show there.

Plus, if demand is unusually strong in Vancouver, there is a small chance for a show at the GM Place instead of a second show at General Motors. Also, there may be a conflict with Hockey for the second show at General Motors.
All 4 Canadian shows are now completely sold out. I can only see the added Toronto show.

Sting, that last paragraph is not quite there. There would be room to add a 2nd Vancouver show on either the 29th or the 30th, leaving space for the Canucks Hockey Playoff fantasies.

They may also return in October or just wait to see how Seattle and Edmonton sells. I'm a little surprised there is no Calgary, since the city has deeper pockets.

In addition to the cities/shows already announced, a press release on ticketmaster.com said shows are being planned for

Chicago

Minneapolis/St. Paul area
Washington D.C.

There's that big gap there in early July, so I'm guessing they'll add a few more shows. I may go down to Philadelphia to check them out if a date gets added there. The last outdoor show I saw in Philly was Popmart

The last time The Police played Philadephia was on August 20, 1983 at the massive 90,000 capacity JFK Stadium, just two days after playing Shea Stadium in New York.

Do you have a link for that press release on Ticket Master because I can't seem to find it on their site?

A second Vancouver show eh

I just checked what the auction prices were like for the Vancouver show....

Floor, Row 2 CA $560.00
Floor, Row 3 CA $530.00
Floor, Row 4 CA $510.00
Floor, Row 5 CA $450.00

I'm feeling pretty good about my Row 12 seats that I believe are on the Sting side of the stage

Row 12, wow!! You got good seats, $225 ones right? Out of my price range unless up close. I hate the auction concept. I expect in the near future, concerts will only be for the elite unless it is GA or an outdoor festival.

TM only offered me row 42 on the floor, $225 bucks to sit a building away from the stage, no thanks.

I got mine with the BestBuy presale on Wednesday

The total price for my pair of tickets: $479

Good for you fah!! I am thankful that a person like me who lives in buttf**k nowhere does get a chance to get tickets for concerts far far away though.

I couldn't believe how many pre-sales they had for this show, I was surprised that there wasn't a GM employee pre-sale too. All I know is the Police might make more money than the Stones and U2 combined during this one tour.

I will be looking down at you from behind the stage section 302 row 8. I will be holding the handkerchief for my nosebleed.

I agree, row 12 would probably be worth it, but row 42, when some people in the stands might actually be physically closer than you for only $90 dollars is not a good deal. Thats the difficulty with these higher priced tickets. They are nearly 3 times the price of the mid-priced tickets, and you don't want to get stuck buying expensive tickets that are only a 3 or 4 rows better than a $90 dollar ticket.
