Police Offered Big Payoff!


Tuesday, February 06, 2007

The Police reportedly offered huge amount for tour

If a report out of the UK is to be believed, the Police are looking at a staggering amount of money for a reunion tour. According to The Sun, well-known concert promoter Michael Cohl wants the band for dates in Europe and North America, and he's offered them 150 million British pounds sterling, which is worth about $294 million based on the exchange rate on Monday, February 5th. No one will go on the record to confirm that the Police will tour this year, but there have been a lot of rumors to that effect.

Police guitarist Andy Summers told us that a reunion tour would be incredibly lucrative for the band: "It's frightening to think about, because I think we could earn more in four months than we did in seven years, you know?"

Cohl is a Canadian promoter who's worked with the Rolling Stones for about 20 years, and he's also done tours for U2, Pink Floyd, and David Bowie, among others, so he's more than capable of getting the money together for the Police, if he's so inclined.

The Police have been in Vancouver, British Columbia, where they've rehearsed for their appearance on the Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 11th). It will be their first time on stage together since the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2003.
