The Police end comeback tour

August 09, 2008|From the Associated Press

The Police concluded one of rock 'n' roll's most successful reunions in New York's Madison Square Garden on Thursday night with some end-of-the-road silliness, walking off to Porky Pig's signature line, "That's all, folks."

The 150th and final show of a comeback tour, which stretched past 14 months, was a benefit for two New York public television stations. Four songs in, Sting thanked his bandmates -- guitarist Andy Summers and drummer Stewart Copeland -- for "your musicianship, your companionship, your friendship and your understanding."

"The real triumph of this tour is that we haven't strangled each other," he said. "Not to say it hasn't crossed my mind -- or Andy's or Stewart's."
