The Police get PAID
The first leg of the Police reunion tour has been an overwhelming success, grossing $107,592,002 from 38 shows that drew 929,941 people. That does not include stops at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn., in June, or the V Fest in Baltimore last weekend.
The highest gross of the first leg was July 5-6 at Wrigley Field in Chicago, which took in $9,494,248 from an attendance of 79,458. The Police start up again Aug. 28 in Stockholm and play Europe through Oct. 20. The band returns to North America Halloween night for a sellout at Madison Square Garden in New York, will play three more weeks in the U.S. and then head to Latin America.
Plans call for the Police to play Australia and Japan in the first quarter next year.
