Interesting to see how involved Fox News has been in the Police reunion rumor mill. Guess Rupert’s a fan? Today they ran a piece mentioning Sting, Andy, and Stewart’s upcoming rehearsals in Vancouver and declaring (without official confirmation) that the band will play The Grammys. Really, just more of the same, unsubstantiated chatter; but, Fox hits on something we hadn’t yet considered:
The big questions now are: Who will open for The Police, and will it be one group or many divided among different regions? Names being bandied about are The Fray, Evanescence and even Virgin’s The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. But don’t be surprised if Fiction Plane, the hot group piloted by Sting’s son Joe Sumner, gets a slot or two as well.
That list is a near perfect who’s who of wasted opportunities! Time to play tour booker. De Do Do Do you have a band for Gordon?
UPDATE: The New York Times confirms it: “The Police Will Kick Off The Grammys”!
