Final tour plans announced for the Police

There may not be a more dubious two-word phrase in the rock world than “farewell tour.” How many of those have the Eagles done at this point? Well now rock trio The Police is saying its world tour this year will be its last. The long farewell will kick off May 1 in Ottawa. The band jumps over to Europe in June and early July, then is back on these shores through early August. Elvis Costello and the Imposters opens all dates. Catch The Police now before Roxanne turns off her red light for good.
