Sources tell me that the date for the show is July 13 and it will take place at a still-to-be-named location in Miami.
?It?s an all-acoustic set,? says a source. It?s also the first time The Police as a group have appeared on ?Unplugged,? since the group disbanded in 1983 and the MTV show didn?t start until 1989. Sting appeared on ?Unplugged? in 1991 as a solo act.
This marks the second time this month we’ve actually wanted our MTV! Incidentally, this also marks the second time this millennium we’ve actually wanted our MTV.
But of course this report is our not-so-clever excuse to post another clip from the Police “dress rehearsal” show in Vancouver on 5/27. Last time it was “Walking In Your Footsteps” — today’s treat is “King Of Pain.” Enjoy! (Yeah we know you guys probably don’t care about this reunion thing quite as much as we do, but we are so stoked for Bonnaroo, just humor us. Vid after the jump for those that don’t feel like it.)
