The Police 30th Anniversary reunion world tour will kick off this May 27. The legendary trio will start its North American tour at Vancouver’s GM Place and travel through different cities in Canada and the United States until early August, and will be back again for a couple of concerts in November after the European tour. The tour sold out almost immediately in all centers but tickets are still available in some cities. Check the schedule for more information. “We’re still getting our act together and finding our groove as a band,” Stewart Copeland said in an interview to the New York Post. “Last time we toured together, we were 24 years old. After all this time [apart], we had a lot of melding to do. We can see and hear where our weaknesses are and what we need to work on.”
Andy Summers, Sting and Stewart Copeland had made a few impromptu reunions at parties and weddings, but it appeared that a full-scale reunion was out of the question.”It was harder to get back together than any of us thought it would be,” Copeland says. “Sting, Andy and I have each been master of his own universe for more than 20 years and we’ve not used to collaborating.” The Police will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their recording debut with their first double-disc CD ‘Best of’ collection entitled, The Police (A&M/UMe), to be released June 5, 2007.
