THE POLICE reunion (30 years)

After 21 years in hybernation, THE POLICE are back!!! The Police opened the 49th Annual Grammy Awards last February 2007 in L.A., California, stating, “We are The Police and we are back” before singing “Roxanne.” I consider it an intense comback for this incredible trio that are considered ICONS. UNIVERSAL RECORDS and MUSIC ONE PHILIPPINES pays tribute to the 30th year anniversary of THE POLICE compose of STING "Gordon Matthew Sumner", Andy Summers, and Stewart Copeland(the founder of the band in 1977). The band split up wayback 1986 and I even remembered watching the 1983 Grammy Awards on T.V. when the song "EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE" took the "Song Of The Year" category beating Michael Jackson's "BILLIE JEAN". YUP! Michael Jackson "THRILLER" album almost took home all the awards back then, but missed out with this important category. THE POLICE reunion was followed by a massive World Tour. I hope they would perform here in MANILA. I have watched STING LIVE IN MANILA before at the ULTRA and it was a great concert. He sang songs from THE POLICE and of course his solo works. I can't forget when STING sang "FIELDS OF GOLD"( a personal favorite!) when everyone was raising their Cigarette Lighters up in the air while singing the lyrics. The front act was Pinoy Band THE AMO BAND who also gave a great performance that evening especially with their "BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY" version (Ang Galing!!!). That was only the STING concert that gave me great memories.....what more if we have the original trio here in MANILA. In our dreams! The Double CD Package released by THE POLICE is actually their first Double disc GREATEST HITS format. I still cherish up to now my Vinyl Record of their 1986 "THE SINGLES" compilation.
THE POLICE..........a great band!!!
