    Remember that we posted about the post punk band The Police reuniting in our blog ? And although the reunion news is still not being officially confirmed, we will go a step further now as we can reveal that The Police will open the Grammy Music Awards show on February 11, 2007. This will be the band's very first public performance since their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and will lead to around 80 live dates to follow. The Police was one of the first bands bringing energy and musical sophistication to the New Wave and Punk movement and became among the first post-punk success stories. Singles as "Roxanne", "Message in a Bottle", "Don't Stand So Close to Me", "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" and "Every Breath You Take" were key tracks from each of their five studio albums. Their final studio album, the very electronic "Synchronicity", topped the American charts for 17 weeks. The Police are Stewart Copeland (drums; born July 16, 1952), Sting (bass, vocals; born October 2, 1951) and Andy Summers (guitar; born December 31, 1942). For more info check www.stingus.net.

      I'll be wishing on a shooting star that this will be true.

        Wow, The Year of A Million Dreams is for real....

        The Police to reunite at Grammys

        The British trio also confirms it will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a concert tour.

        By Geoff Boucher
        Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
        January 30, 2007

        The rumors are true: The Police will reunite for a performance that will open the broadcast of the 49th Annual Grammy awards at Staples Center on Feb. 11, the Recording Academy announced early Tuesday.

        The British trio of Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland have set aside their legendary animus for one another to revive one of the most popular rock bands ever and, in the weeks after the awards gala, they are expected to announce a concert tour that will certainly be one of the hottest tickets of the year.

        For fans, the announcement is cause for excitement but not shock; the band members have been talking publicly in recent months about a negotiated reunion to celebrate the band's 30th anniversary as a rock 'n' roll enterprise.

        The band split in 1984 after seven years and five studio albums jammed with memorable, often reggae-influenced hits, among them "Roxanne," "Every Little She Does is Magic," "Spirits in the Material World," "Wrapped Around Your Finger" and the 1980s signature song of love-as-obsession, "Every Breath You Take," which won the 1983 Grammy for song of the year.

        The song title that best described their attitude toward one another by the mid-1980s, however, may have been "Don't Stand So Close to Me," especially as Summers and Copeland chafed under Sting's push for more artistic control. He got his wish with a solo career and his estranged band mates kept busy with numerous and respected projects through years but never came close to matching the singer's commercial success.

        The trio did call a ceasefire in their personal feuds long enough to play at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in New York City in 2003.

        Now singer-bassist Sting, guitarist Summers and drummer Copeland will come to Los Angeles and play the Grammys 30 years to the month after the Police released their debut single, "Fall Out." That anniversary and tie-in releases scheduled this year of music from the band's archives has been cited as the motivation for the thaw between the band members.

        The Grammys will air on CBS and scheduled performers this year include Justin Timberlake, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, John Mayer, Gnarls Barkley and the Dixie Chicks.

              I'll probbaly watch the Grammys now just for this. they prob won't come anywhere too close to me on tour, but I'll be happy if they shoot their tour in Hi-Def and put it on one of the HD channels, I love watching HD concerts, next best thing to being there live for me.

                Saw them in concert many years ago.......
                Very good. Sting played an upright bass fiddle & actually stood on it while playing. Love to see them again.
