Police retiring after one last victory lap across the US

Posted February 13th, 2008 by eric · No Comments

Raking in almost $340 million bucks from last year’s record shattering tour hasn’t slowed The (reunited) Police, who are prepping one final summer jaunt across the US before retiring for good. Or at least until its time to rob fans blind again and build more castles. The band is planning to play amphitheaters and sheds this time, avoiding stadiums for a (slightly) more intimate setting. Elvis Costello and The Imposters will open all dates, making this a concert I kind of have to go to, despite the pounding my kitty will take. Tour dates are forthcoming and the stops are rumored to be cities that last year’s tour skipped, so Columbia, SC should be in the running, right?
