Following comes from the Daily Mail:
Sting is in talks to re-form The Police and tour with the group – 30 years after they were formed. The band, who rank alongside The Rolling Stones and The Beatles among the greats of rock, are considering playing a series of dates in the UK next summer. Consisting of Sting on bass and vocals, drummer Stewart Copeland and guitarist Andy Summers, the group have been in discussions for months. They became one of the biggest bands of the Eighties with hits including Walking On The Moon, Every Breath You Take, Don’t Stand So Close To Me and Message In A Bottle. News that they are re-forming will surprise fans as Sting, 55, has always resolutely opposed the move in the past.
Sources say rehearsals have been pencilled in to take place before Sting begins the February leg of his latest European tour and after Copeland has finished his stint as a judge in the BBC celebrity duet show Just The Two Of Us. The record label, A&M, is believed to be planning a special anniversary release in June and the tour dates would coincide with that. A source said: ‘They were intending to announce it in January after all the tour dates had been finalised.
