Stewart Copeland admits he would tour with Sting again

The Police set for more reunion shows?
The Police may yet reform once again, after drummer Stewart Copeland refused to rule out further shows.

The post-punk veterans got back together for a world tour last year, including a headline slot at the Isle Of Wight festival.
The tour saw them play to three million people, and Copeland told BBC News that he would be willing to do it again - but joked that it would not be not for a good while.

He said: "I'd recommend that every artist should do it every 20 years. So call me in 20 years."

Copeland has also just completed composing the soundtrack for the forthcoming show 'Ben Hur Live', a project which he described as a "no brainer." He describes the show as "music mixed with media, some thrashing drums with an ethnic element, a Middle Eastern feel".

Described by producers as an 'operatic sports event', the show premiers in London this September and then travel through Europe. The climax of the performance reportedly features a live chariot race involving 20 horses.
