The Police have announced that they are to play their last ever show in Ireland this June, and have planned an open-air concert at historic Stormont.

Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers are currently on the last leg of their 30th anniversary reunion tour, which started in Vancouver, Canada early last year.

The show is set to take place on June 20, and is a “fantastic coup” for Northern Ireland says First Minister Ian Paisley.

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has also commented saying: “It is hoped that we will be able to accommodate some 35,000 fans at Stormont for the concert. I look forward to attending what I am sure will be an enjoyable show.”

Previous artists to appear at Stormont include Rod Stewart and the Eagles.
