The Police are set to reform at next month’s Grammy Awards, a number of internet news sites are reporting.
The comeback, which is still unconfirmed, was initially reported by music site Side Line, and reveals the band plan to celebrate their 30 year anniversary with a big tour, reportedly “around 80 live dates”.
The famed post-punk reggae-pop-rock act, which featured frontman Sting, guitarist Andy Summers and drummer Stuart Copeland, formed in 1977 but released their last studio album – the famed “Synchronicity” – just seven years later before each band member went their own separate ways.
“We started 30 years ago so it would be nice to do something to celebrate,” Sting said recently. “We don’t quite know what, but we’re talking about it.”
Adding more fuel to the fire is a number of recent sightings of Summers and Copeland at a Sting show in Los Angeles this month.
Last year, Stuart Copeland revealed how he would love the band to reform, but still doubted it would ever happen, [read: Copeland talks Police, reveals new film project] .
“Sting runs ten miles a day. Now I don’t have that sort of energy any more, but I know I would definitely still be up there,” he said. “I think if we did get back together, it would be great. Performing recently at the House of Blues, that was so enjoyable. But, I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
