The Police to play Fenway Park
Over the past couple of weeks, the rumors of a Police reunion tour have pretty much become a foregone conclusion. The only mystery left is where they are going to play. Yesterday, we got the first "official" confirmation of any of the dates. Boston TV station WBZ reports that The Police will play two shows at Fenway Park on July 28 and 29.
That the band has been rehearsing in Vancouver for the past couple of weeks is possibly the worst kept secret in show business. Over the weekend, Stewart Copeland posted the picture shown above on his website. It's expected that after their performance opening the Grammys on Sunday night, they'll annouce the tour next week. The fact that Bonnaroo organizers have postponed their lineup announcement that is usually made at the end of January until February 14 has increased speculation The Police will be one of the headliners.
Given all that, Sting's announcement at the beginning of this song seems appropriate.
