The Police are a three-piece rock band consisting of singer/bassist Sting, guitarist Andy Summers, and drummer Stewart Copeland. The band became globally popular in the early 1980s, playing a style of rock that was influenced by jazz, reggae, and punk music. Their 1983 album Synchronicity was number one in the UK and the US and went Platinum eight times in the US. The band broke up in the mid-1980s but reunited in early 2007 with the announcement that they are undertaking a huge, international world tour dubbed The Police Reunion Tour from the middle of that year on until mid-2008, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of their hit single Roxanne and also, to a lesser extent, that of their formation as a group.
