While a reunion performance by The Police at the Grammy Awards in L.A. February 11 is big news, Pollstar has learned that the really big story will come the next day. The band will hold a morning press conference February 12 at L.A.’s famed Whisky a Go Go, where they will announce what is being called "really big news" and will also perform a few songs.
Although the exclusive event is for industry and media only, L.A. radio station 93.1 Jack FM is holding a contest that will grant a few listeners a chance to attend.
The blogs have been buzzing for weeks about possible dates for a summer tour by The Police, and fans have been awaiting an official announcement. While Pollstar’s sources have been extremely tight-lipped about exactly what really big news the band will announce at the Whisky, it’s a safe bet fans won’t be waiting after Monday.
