The legendary rock act are giving their fans a special present by preparing to drop a live record of their recent tour this year.
Fans of legendary group The Police who missed out on watching their recent reunion concerts will have the chance to check out the tour in a form of a live CD/DVD, set to be dropped later this year. The live album is taken from the band's two shows held in Buenos Aires, Argentina on December 1-2, 2007.
Revealing the reason they picked their concerts in Argentina as the one they recorded for the upcoming record, the Police's drummer Stewart Copeland said to Billboard.com, "Those rockin' Argentines -- man, are they noisy. It was a pretty exciting show." Not only featuring their live shows, to make it more special on the upcoming DVD package, the band will also include a documentary of their reunion tour.
Moreover, Copeland also revealed that the band have no plan to do any more music projects after finishing their tour on August 7 at the Madison Square Garden, New York, although he didn't rule out the possibility of a new record. "It was always planned as a very finite thing. In the back of our minds there was the possible 'Who knows? Maybe if some new material comes up or something like that, you never know...' But the mission has always been finite," Copeland said.
In other news, regarding their upcoming final concert in New York, the rockers have offered a special treat for their fans by offering a VIP packages and autographed instruments that will be auctioned through eBay. The money raised from the auction will be used for charity reason by giving the proceeds to help the arts production of New York Public Televisions, Thirteen/WNET and WLIW New York.
