The Police are Back, On Tour and On a New CD

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few months (and a soundproof one, at that), you're probably aware that groundbreaking rockers The Police are reuniting for a tour this year to mark their 30th anniversary.

Of course, if you're a regular reader of this blog you knew about this tour back in January, because I've written about it several times since then, before it was even announced. Yes, as you can guess, I'm pretty dang excited about The Police tour, which kicked off yesterday with a show in Vancouver.

This is one tour that people will be talking about for years. Besides playing a number of the standard concert venues, The Police are performing at some venues that don't normally host concerts, including Boston's Fenway Park, Chicago's Wrigley Field, and even Churchill Downs, the home of the Kentucky Derby!

So far I've been shut out of getting my hands on tickets for this Police tour, but I'm going to keep trying. Fortunately it's much easier to get one's hands on the new Police CD, which I’d also be thrilled to have. It's a two-disc set that features 28 of the band's best-known tracks, plus some lesser-known tunes that I was definitely glad to see included.

The record company was smart in making this a two-CD set, so more songs could be included. The Police just have too many great tunes to be crammed onto one of those single-disc anthologies.

If you’re going to see The Police tour, this set is the perfect thing to get you psyched for the concert. If you’re not going to see them live, this Police CD will give you a reminder of the great music they produced during their entire career.

Here’s what’s on the the set:
