Reunion of The Police Getting Closer: Grammys, Tour Planned

It looks like that rumored reunion of iconic rock band The Police is getting closer to reality. Billboard magazine's Web site and the Sting/Police fan site are reporting that the band will play one song to open the 2007 Grammy Awards show on February 11, though the Grammy Web site still has no mention of the performance. reports that The Police have been rehearsing in Canada for the Grammys gig, and will later begin rehearsing for a full-fledged tour, their first since breaking up in 1986. The site reports that about 80 live dates are being planned, many of them in May, June, and July. The Police are reported to be planning a number of festival gigs in the UK, the site mentioned last week. also says that a new album by The Police is NOT going to happen, although it mentions that a new box set by the band will feature some new songs.
