The Police Announce Plans for Reunion Tour


WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) - The Police announced their first tour in decades Monday at a rehearsal at the Whisky a Go-Go as a throng of fans crowded near the legendary Sunset Strip nightclub.

The trio, which led off Sunday night's Grammy Awards with a live performance of its hit "Roxanne," broke up in 1984, and members Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland have since pursued solo careers.

The Police plan to play arenas, stadiums and some festivals in a North American tour beginning May 28 in Vancouver.

Some confirmed cities on the tour include New York, Boston, Seattle, Denver, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Dallas, New Orleans, St. Louis, Toronto and Montreal.

Tickets for the North American leg will range from $50 to $225. A portion of the tour's proceeds will go to WaterAid, an anti-poverty organization that seeks to provide poor people access to safe water.
