Just when I start feeling old, another rock band reunites, and I feel even older. Billboard Magazine is reporting Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland are reforming The Police for a tour next year in the United States.
The band never officially broke up, but after the successful debut of Sting’s 1985 solo album, “The Dream Of The Turtles,” the trio drifted apart.
The Police did three concerts for an Amnesty International fundraiser in June 1986 and rerecorded two of their earlier hits in July of the same year.
But since 1986, the trio had only played together twice. The first was an impromptu set at Sting’s 1992 wedding to Trudie Styler, and the band also played together at the its 2003 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
I’m seriously hoping for more than a nostalgia tour.
