the Police - Reunion tour 2007

Police reunion!!!

On January 24, 2007, Rock101, a radio station in Vancouver, British Columbia, reported that the trio was coming together again and had in fact begun tour rehearsals in Vancouver. There were numerous sightings of the group and their entourage in the Vancouver area as expectation built of such a tour.
The reunited Police performed at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards on February 11, 2007 in Los Angeles. On February 12th, The Police held rehearsals and a press conference for the media at the Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, where they confirmed that they would be undertaking the world tour starting in Vancouver in May. It was also announced that the opening act for the North American leg of the tour would be Fiction Plane, a pop-rock band from England featuring lead singer and bass guitarist Joe Sumner, the son of Sting. In Philadelphia, Scottish rock band The Fratellis also joined Fiction Plane as an opening act. In addition, in Miami, Maroon 5 joined the bill. Tour sponsorship is from Best Buy. A portion of ticket sales is being donated to WaterAid. Since concert tickets went up for sale worldwide, some concert dates were sold out in just minutes. Tickets for the entire British tour, the band's first in 24 years, sold out within 30 minutes. The first concert was held in Vancouver on May 28, 2007 in front of 22,000 fans at one of two nearly sold-out shows. Opening with "Message in a Bottle," the band performed for roughly two hours, playing mostly chart hits with a smattering of other favorites popular among fans of The Police. While the Vancouver concerts received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics, drummer Stewart Copeland in a forum posting (on his official site) called the band's May 30 performance "lame" and took humorous pokes at himself and his bandmates, calling one of Sting's song-ending leaps that of a "petulant pansy" and suggesting guitarist Andy Summers was "in Idaho" when he was half a bar out of sync with Copeland's drumming. In spite of these glitches, however, he says he is enjoying himself and after the set he and his bandmates fell into each other's arms backstage, laughing.
