The Police are a 3 piece rock band that was formed in the mid-1980s. On their 30th anniversary, they decided to do a reunion tour; this tour was kicked off at the 2007 Grammy Awards on February 11, 2007. The Police are known for their fun songs and great lyrics, partly as a result of Sting’s background as an English teacher. A portion of the sales from their 2007-2008 tour (which had three North American legs!) are being donated to WaterAid, a philanthropy dedicated to ameliorating living conditions in impoverished countries.
