The Police Reunion Concert Tour

Apr 19, 2008
Andy Summers, Sting (Gordon Sumner) and Stewart Copeland are three musicians that got together to form the band The Police. They were very popular in the early 1980s, but they broke up by the mid-1980s and did not have any reunion until 2007. The Police then planned a reunion to go through 2007 and 2008. The reunion was planned as a 30 year anniversary celebration of their hit single "Roxanne."

The Police Reunion started on May 28, 2007 and will end on August 5, 2008. Some people think that the reunion tour is in two parts because of the different legs. However, it is just one reunion tour with numerous different legs.

The first leg was in North America and was held from May 28, 2007 to August 5, 2007. The second leg was in Europe and was held from August 29, 2007 to October 20, 2007. The third leg was in North America and was held from October 31, 2007 to November 28, 2007. The fourth leg was held in Latin America from December 1, 2007 to December 11, 2007. The fifth leg was held in Australia and New Zealand from January 17, 2008 to February 2, 2008. The sixth leg was in Asia and was held from February 4, 2008 to February 14, 2008. The sixth leg was in Hawaii on February 16 and 17, 2008.

Three more legs of the tour were scheduled. The first is in North America from May 1, 2008 to May 28, 2008. The second is in Europe from June 3, 2008 to July 5, 2008. The third leg is is in North America from July 11, 2008 to August 5, 2008.

The Police do not have to worry about costs for this reunion tour. It is extremely popular. Some of the concert dates were sold out in just minutes. All tickets for the British tour sold out within the first 30 minutes they were on sale. Worldwide, ticket revenues reached $168 million and are expected to reach a total of $340 million.

Most of the critics have given the reunion tour shows glowing reviews. However, after the first show, Stewart himself wrote that the performance was "lame." He also wrote that one of Sting's song endings was a leap of a "petulant pansy" and that Summer was "in Idaho" when he was half a bar off with Copeland's drumming.

Some media picked this up as a fight or argument, but it was really just picking at his other band members. Both Sting and Copeland took it as light-hearted teasing. Stewart has said that after the set, he and his band mates fell laughing into each other's arms.

Unfortunately, that was not the only negative review of the reunion tour. The newspapers in the Twin Cities area gave a negative review to the reunion tour show. They decided that it was "sloppy." However, this does not seem to match what fans think of the show. They love Stewart's drumming, Summer's guitar, and Sting's bass and signing. They say that the the small idiosyncrasies prove that the band members are real people. It is reported that they handle forgotten lyrics and getting off time very professionally.

While the tour may end with a hopeful message of "We'll see you again!" from Sting, he has said that The Police will not get back together after the reunion tour. His exact quote is, "There will be no new album, no big new tour, once we're done with our reunion tour, that's it for The Police."
