Ending months of speculation, The
Police finally announced plans for a reunion world tour, to begin
May 28th in Vancouver, Canada. Other stops announced include the Bonnaroo
Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, Boston's Fenway Park, and two dates at
New York's Madison Square Garden.
In a press conference and "rehearsal performance" at the Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, California, bandmates Sting, Andy Summers, and Stewart Copeland appeared to be in good spirits, and even had a little fun with their famous reputation for infighting.
"We're still fighting and arguing about the music," Sting told reporters.
"No, we're not," Summers chimed in.
"Yes, we are," deadpanned Sting.

May 28: Vancouver (GM Place)

June 9: Denver (Pepsi Center)
June 15: Las Vegas (MGM Grand Garden Arena)
June 16: Manchester, Tenn. (Bonnaroo Festival)
