"My previous three B&O albums were collections of tracks that already existed but the fourth is different - these songs were written exclusively for this album. These days, I don't really see myself as an artist but I like the idea of being a collaborative writer and producer, so this was just a fantastic opportunity to do my own record: I was 50 per cent of everything that happened. Travelling the world and recording music in various studios and homes, with a variety of artists and with me as its unifying force. Working on different kinds of music with a broad palette of styles is what excites me. Hopefully that diversity of approach is reflected in this record." - Kipper

Police think big for summer tour - The Police tour, the trio's first such endeavor in 23 years, has not only thrust songs like 'So Lonely' and 'King of Pain' into our collective memory banks, but also the concept of stadium shows back into a national discourse. South Florida hasn't seen a stadium tour of this magnitude since megagroups U2 and the Rolling Stones played within weeks of each other in 1997 in Miami-Dade. And despite woes in the music industry, the Police tour is a money-maker, ranking as Ticketmaster's No. 1 "most requested event" of the year thus far, dethroning the mighty Broadway musical Wicked. The Police also top the list of all concert tours, grossing an average $3.4 million per date, comfortably ahead of No. 2, Kenny Chesney's $1.3 million, according to Pollstar, a concert industry trade magazine and website...

The Police rose from phony '77 punks to global '80s stadium kings before crumbling in a fug of verbal cruelty. Now they're back. Phil Sutcliffe joins their world tour for the full astonishing story of chaos, coke and power struggles, and finds they still ''drive each other nuts''. Soundcheck. Not long now; the comeback gig's only three hours away. But they don't look nervous. Even when their faces appear in enormous close-up on the big screens above them. Even though tonight, May 28, 2007, Vancouver GM Place hockey arena, it's their first concert proper for more than 20 years since they broke up in discord and disarray. They're talking to each other on-mike, meeting each other's gaze with grave attention, their intimate conversation echoing around the banks of empty bucket seats...
