Madison Square Garden

Another great band has taken final bows and left the stage. The Police wrapped its reunion tour and last concert with a New York City fundraiser at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night, August 7, 2008.

 Bassist/vocalist Sting, drummer Stewart Copeland, and guitarist Andy Summers got back together for the reunion tour after taking a break from performing in1986.

The Police farewell tour began in Vancouver during the spring of 2007 and played more than 140 shows. Sting and company rocked The Hollywood Bowl several weeks ago on May 27.

The Police was formed in 1977. The group has had some great hits over the years including “Every Breath You Take,” “Don’t Stand So Close To Me,” and “Roxanne.”

The final tour reportedly sold well over three million tickets and made more than $350 million.  Not a bad farewell, not bad at all.
