Those Days Are Over

"Ladies and gentlemen, we are the Police and we're back."
Nice. The Police reunion at the start of the Grammys last night was the one and only thing I was interested to see (although it was fun to see Dan Wilson of Semisonic winning with the Dixie Chicks) and they did not disappoint. In fact, I think my wife started hyperventilating when she saw Sting. Ok, maybe not quite, but she was impressed with his ... physique musical abilities.

Sting and the others performed my favorite high school legal age drinking game song, Roxanne (drink every time Sting sings Roxanne -- fun stuff). You could just tell he was excited about it, but really, who wouldn't be after a recent release featuring lute music. It was a quality performance and for someone who is just a couple years older than the Police, I reacted to it sentimentally despite never being a huge fan.

A global tour has been announced not surprisingly, starting May 28. No dates as of yet in the too poppy HQ hometowns of Des Moines and Atlanta, but there are a lot of dates to fill. Get all the official info here.
It is highly likely that the Police will be the top-grossing tour of 2007.
No doubt.
