The Police to play last gig at Madison Square Garden

Band unveil legendary venue as location of final show

The Police to play last gig at Madison Square Garden
The Police have announced they will play their last-ever show at Madison Square Garden in New York City, with support from the B52s.

The band will perform the gig on August 7, with all proceeds from the show going to New York public television stations Thirteen/WNET and WLIW21.

In order to secure tickets to the event, fans can make donations to the stations from June 14, when the stations will air a Police special. The price of the tickets, which will be sold in pairs, will range from $150 to $5,000. The latter is a package deal that includes admission to the sound check.

Members of The Police fanclub will have the opportunity to buy tickets from Monday (June 9)

The band announced the show a month ago on May 6, when they 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.
