    "The Police may get together again -- for one night and possibly two.

    Drummer Stewart Copeland told reporters in Milan, Italy, that the band will play March 10 in New York when it is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    The band, which split up in 1985 after having such hits as "Roxanne" and "Every Breath You Take," also has been asked to perform at a concert celebrating the 20th anniversary of freedom for South Africa's Nelson Mandela.

    There's just one hitch. "Sting still hasn't said yes," Copeland said, referring to the Mandela concert only. "In fact, me and [guitarist] Andy Summers were thinking of asking [U2 singer] Bono."

    The last I heard was that Copeland was threatening to have Bono fill in for Sting at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
    Let's pray it doesn't come to that.

    I agree 100% with FH. Not that I don't like Bono, but he ain't no Sting! And he shouldn't try to be.

    Let's hope Sting comes to his senses.

    Sting is a real f'n bitch when it comes to The Police! he's waaaaaaay to full of himself to take a step "backwards".
    I got to see The Police at Shea stadium back in the day & it was just amazing to see. It would be almost as fun as seeing VH again (yeah, like THAT'S gonna happen too). [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    Bono is his own guy, he's not trying to be like anyone. He's kewl just being himself.
    I think the Police-Bono thing is just a big fat rumor anyway

    Thats under an assumption Bono would do it, and I doubt he would. Whats in it for him? Can't see any point to it.

    it wasn't just Bono at that gig. i believe Peter Gabriel and Bruce Springsteen were up there, also. i have the whole show on tape somewhere...

    getting Bono to sing is one thing, who the hell they gonna get to play bass if Sting's not there?

    right, but i was trying to point out that it's not too far fetched, since they collaborated there, and Bono and Sting seem to support similar charity causes...

    Now that wouldn't suck to say the least. The Police back together even for only a short time. Bring it on, bring it on. Out.
