The Police reunite for reunion tour

Per The Hollywood Reporter, The Police have declared their intentions for a tour starting May 28, 2007:

An old recording was played before the Police took the stage Monday at the Whisky a Go-Go in West Hollywood to announce their world tour. An interviewer on the tape asked whether Sting could conceive of an instance when the hugely popular trio would reunite. The singer replied that if that ever happened, he would be found “certifiably insane.”

Well, call out the whitecoats because singer-bassist Sting, guitarist Andy Summers and drummer Stewart Copeland have reunited after two decades for a global jaunt that begins May 28 in Vancouver. The first 14 dates — including two at Madison Square Garden in New York and a headlining show at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival outside Nashville — were confirmed during the event, which doubled as a rehearsal, with the band playing a handful of Police tunes.

I am sure that fans will eat this up. I can already hear “Roxanne” in my head, live.
