The Police announce last-ever show

Reunion tour will end in New York

The Police announce last-ever show
The Police have announced they will play their last-ever show as a group at a concert in New York to benefit the arts.

The date and location of the show have yet to be revealed, with proceeds from the production going to arts programming for the city's public television stations.

In another socially conscious move, the band today donated $1 million to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's programme that will see one million trees planted in the city by 2017. The city matched the band’s contribution.

"We kicked off our very first American tour at CBGB in 1978 and this summer, 30 years later, our journey will come full circle as we play our final show here in New York City," the band said in a statement.

"We are honoured to partner with public television and have a deep respect for their commitment to arts and culture."

The Police reunited for a world tour a year ago and will play their final show in the UK on June 29.
