The Police Finish Off Tour with CD/DVD

Published: 2008-07-16
More than a year after heading out on their reunion tour The Police have decided to call it quits yet again. The reggae influenced rock trio have been on the road since May 2007. Though they don't have any more Canadian dates coming up, they started their tour with three shows in Vancouver last year and also passed through Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa.

The Police will play their final concert at New York City's Madison Square Garden on August 7. Proceeds from their last show will go to New York Public Television. Along with the tickets, PBS stations and eBay are also running an auction, running until July 24, for a VIP concert experience that includes front-row seats, meet-and-greets with The Police and the openers the B-52's as well as a pre-dinner concert and souvenirs. Another auction running August 4-14 will feature autographed instruments. Proceeds from the auctions will go towards arts and culture programming on PBS stations.

For those who weren't able to make it out to a show on the reunion tour the band will also release a live CD/DVD of their December 1-2 shows in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Along with the concert footage the DVD will also include a documentary about the tour titled Better Than Therapy that was shot by drummer Stewart Copeland's son Jordan. The film is due out later this year.
