Super group the Police announced at a New York press conference on Tuesday that they’ll play their final concert EVER in NYC in August – the exact date to be announced.
This final concert will be a fundraiser with proceeds benefiting the production of arts programming for New York’s public television stations Thirteen/WNET and WLIW New York. Tickets will be available nationally online via the Thirteen/WNET and WLIW Web sites.
The band also announced that they will contribute $1 million to NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s MillionTreesNYC initiative — a gift the city will match — to plant trees all over New York City.
This announcement comes at a perfect time for Sting!
Is he hoping that we’ll talk more about this new great thing he’s gonna be a part of and stop yapping about the Rainforest charity ‘scandal’ he was linked to yesterday?
It’s hard to forget the bad stuff!
