The Police to rearrange cancelled European dates

Plus Sting and co extend tour into 2008

The Police have extended their world tour to enable disappointed ticketholders to attend previously postponed shows.

The band cancelled a number of shows on their tour due to Sting’s voice problems.

The tour, which was originally due to end in Japan in February, will now reconvene in June 2008 as a replacement for the postponed dates.

Tickets from Manchester (October 15) are now valid for June 17 2008 and tickets for October 16 will be valid for June 18.

Refunds are also available and ticket holders are advised to contact their point of purchase.

Rescheduled German dates will be announced later today.

The postponed show in Antwerp is cancelled as it cannot be rescheduled. Ticket holders for this show should return to the point of purchase for a refund.
