The Police Announce Their Tour Dates - Sorta
For a band that waited 20 years to get back together, and for a band that knew that they were going to announce their reunion tour today at the Whisky, they sure didn't have many tour dates lined up.
The Police are arguably the most anticipated reunion tour in recent memory. Only a Pink Floyd reunion, one would think, could eclipse this summer's tour but when it came time for the Police to cough up the dates, they came a little short, if you ask LAist, with just a little over a dozen dates, and none in LA!
Vancouver GM Place - May 28
Seattle Key Arena - June 6
Denver Pepsi Center - June 9
Las Vegas MGM Garden Arena - June 15
Bonnaroo Festival - June 16
Phoenix US Airwaves Arena - June 18
Dallas American Airlines Center - June 26
New Orleans Arena - June 30
St Louis Scottrade Center - July 2
Toronto Air Canada Center - July 22
Montreal Bell Centre - July 25
Boston Fenway Park - July 28
New York Madison Square Garden - August 1& 3
Plus look at all those open dates! Does Live Nation not have any faith in the trio? And why don't they know when most of these shows will go on sale?
Is everyone high over at the Police camp?
First they used a backing track at the Grammys and now they come with this weak shit. As much as we love and look forward to the Police tour, we wonder why they rushed to announce their dates mere hours after the Grammys when they, infact, had very little news to give us?
