We’re unabashed Sting fans (deal), but last year’s lute-laden Labyrinth collection had us rolling our eyes with everyone else. Do pop stars get any more pretentious? (Apparently they do … when said lute is played on Studio 60). But, if the Police reunion ’07 rumors are true, we will so forgive and forget. Via Harp:
The proverbial ?informed sources? have suggested that a tour will be announced some time in January ? presumably it would start in May or June, which is when the Police?s label, A&M, is reportedly planning to release a special 30th anniversary anthology.
The Police formed in 1977, and a spokesperson for A&M confirmed that the erstwhile band members had indeed been in discussions. A&M issued a statement late last month saying, ?Next year is the 30th anniversary of the release of ?Roxanne,? the first Police single. It is our intention to mark the anniversary by doing something special with the band’s catalogue of songs. Needless to say, everyone is hopeful the band will support our plans and while early discussions have taken place, nothing has been decided.?
We’re downright giddy. Andy, Stewart, and Gordon haven’t played together since .. well, 2003. But still. OMG, we hope Genesis open.
Here’s the first live performance of “Message In A Bottle” ever…
What’s your favorite Police song?
