On This Day, March 4th

On This Day in 1984, The Police wrapped their Synchronicity tour in Melbourne, Australia. It would be the last full concert they would play together as The Police, as they decided to disband. The did come together for the Amnesty International “Conspiracy of Hope Tour,” which ended June 15, 1986. They were together again at their 2003 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction.

In 2007, they reunited. The Police performed at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards on February 11, 2007. It was likely not much of a surprise when, the very next day, they announced they would be touring again. The Reunion Tour ended August 7, 2008, but their music lives on. What is your favorite song by The Police? I’ll post mine below. Actually, I’m going to drop two below, as it’s too hard to just pick one!

“Wrapped Around Your Finger” was directed by Godley & Creme. You may remember them from their song “Cry.”
