Sting Rules Out Another Police Reunion

cbssting Sting Rules Out Another Police Reunion

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?

    Oh quit your crying Sting. You owe it to the fans to play (with the Police) and to play what they want to hear. That goes for Steve Perry and Robert Plant and all the other music icons the fans made. Just my opinion. I always wanted to say that. Thanks.

    Dude, I totally agree. It’s not like fans are asking for forever, but when you consider the age of Sting, Robert Plant and the likes, there original fan-base — those that, arguably, truly love them, the ones that made them icons — should at least be able to see them before they pass. Plus, when you consider how sh!tty the current state of mainstream rock is, maybe they could turn the younger generations on to good music, and what it truly means to be a rock star: not marketing, but talent.

    […] He also knows his advocacy for environmental issues hasn’t done much to help his career, saying: “People don’t want to hear it. I’m doing it because I have a stake in it, and because it works…Has it helped my career? I sincerely doubt it.” Holistic beliefs or not, we still love you, Sting, and the beautiful music you share with the world, but that still doesn’t excuse that fact you’ll never reunite with The Police again.
