Newly reformed rock group The Police are expected to finally announce details for their much-rumoured 30th anniversary world, at a news conference in Los Angeles this Monday (February 12).

As previously reported on, the trio; Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers’ first performance together will be opening this years’ Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 11).

The concerts are expected to coincide with a re-issue campaign from Universal Music, the current owners of The Police’s original A&M label. It is unclear if the campaign will include a new ‘Greatest Hits’ anniversary compilation.

A statement from the record label, posted on Sting’s official website, says: “As the 30th anniversary of the first Police single approaches, discussions have been underway as to how this will be commemorated. While we can confirm that there will indeed be something special done to mark the occasion, the depth of the band’s involvement still remains undetermined.”

Speaking to recently, drummer Stewart Copeland answered criticism of the reunion tour. “I don’t think in terms of “spoiling” the past,” said Copeland. “If there was a show, I would have no doubt that the three of us would be everything that we’d need to be.”

The “special announcement” will take place at 11am (Pacific Standard Time) at the Whisky A Go Go nightclub in West Hollywood.

Check back to on Monday for details as we get them.
