If you missed [lastfm]The Police[/lastfm] reunion tour in 2007 and 2008, it’s sounding more and more likely that you’ll never get another chance! Find out why [lastfm]Sting [/lastfm] isn’t interested in getting the band back together – again – after the jump.
According to [lastfm]Sting [/lastfm] (real name: Gordon Sumner), the reunion felt like getting together with an ex-wife.
“People reacted to [lastfm]The Police[/lastfm] coming back as if mum and dad had got together, you could see that emotion in the audience,” he said. “But who really wants to go and live with the wife you divorced? I won’t do it again. But I don’t need to I’ve done it now.”
Well, that doesn’t sound positive.
“It wasn’t easy,” he piled on. “There was nothing new in it – no new songs, no new energy, no desire to take that as a platform and move somewhere else.”
The tour was a rousing success, but [lastfm]Sting[/lastfm] would seemingly rather play old songs with new people; his current tour is called “Symphonicity” and it features [lastfm]Sting[/lastfm] playing old songs with the United Kingdom’s [lastfm]Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra[/lastfm].
Which would you rather see: [lastfm]Sting[/lastfm] with [lastfm]the Police[/lastfm] or [lastfm]Sting[/lastfm] with the Royal Philharmonic?
