The Police

The Police are a three-piece Punk/ska/rock band consisting of bassist/lead vocalist Sting (Gordon Sumner) (b. 2 October 1951), guitarist Andy Summers (b. 7 January 1943), and drummer Stewart Copeland (b. 3 March 1954). The band became globally popular in the early 1980s, playing a style of rock that was influenced by jazz, reggae, and punk music. Their 1983 album Synchronicity was number one in the UK and the US and went Platinum eight times in the US. The band broke up in the mid-1980s, but reunited in early 2007 with the announcement that they are undertaking a world tour from the middle of that year on until mid-2008, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of their hit single "Roxanne" and also, to a lesser extent, that of their formation as a group.
