Reformed Police to play Croke Park

The Police, who recently reformed after more than 20 years, have announced an Irish show at Croke Park in Dublin on Saturday 6 October.

Following a series of sold-out dates in North America, they will embark on their European Tour in Stockholm from the end of August.

Rock trio Fiction Plane will join The Police to play support for the European leg of the tour.


A percentage of the proceeds from the tour will be donated to international NGO WaterAid, dedicated to reducing poverty by improving access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene education.

Tickets, priced from ¤86.50 and limited to six per person/transaction, go on sale on next Friday, 20 April at 8am.

Rating 4

There won't be a better comeback this year.

Vocals are stunning throughout

Feist - The Reminder

Rating 4

A record with something for every mood but which also has the ability to change the one you're in.

The energy is infectious

Wilco - Sky Blue Sky

Rating 4

Stripped of computer-based recording techniques, 'Sky Blue Sky' is steeped in the classic sounds of the 1970s and the looser, live feel of that era.
