The Police Will Play Their Last and Final Show in New York

Appearing at a conference with Mayor Bloomberg this morning, The Police announced that their final show—no, really this time—will take place in New York this summer.

“We kicked off our very first American tour at CBGB’s in 1978 and this summer, 30 years later, our journey will come full circle as we play our final show here in New York City,” the band said in a statement, although it is not entirely full circle since CBGB’s is now a John Varvatos store.

A date and venue have not been set, but it will take place sometime after their London farewell on June 29th. The concert will be benefit arts programming for New York’s public television stations.
