Special event fuels talk of Police tour

February 08, 2007|Randy Lewis | Times Staff Writer

SPECULATION about the imminent announcement of a reunion tour by the Police escalated Wednesday with word that members Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers will make "a special announcement ... to commemorate the band's 30th anniversary" on Monday at the Whisky in West Hollywood.

The trio, which disbanded in 1986, will be fresh off its reunion performance Sunday night, one that's expected to be a musical high point of the Grammy Awards at Staples Center.

Group representatives would not elaborate on the announcement, but invited the media to a rehearsal at the club in conjunction with the announcement.

A statement posted recently on Sting's website (www.sting.com) and attributed to Interscope Geffen A&M Records, the band's former label, noted that this year marks the 30th anniversary of the release of the breakthrough single, "Roxanne."

"Discussions have been underway as to how this will be commemorated," the statement read. "While we can confirm that there will indeed be something special done to mark the occasion, the depth of the band's involvement still remains undetermined."
