This Week in History

Known as the world’s highest earning musicians in 2008, The Police performed at Philips Arena on November 17-18, 2007 for the reuniting tour after their breakup in 1984. The tour was the 30th anniversary of their hit single “Roxanne.” The English band, composed of Sting, Andy Summers, and Stewart Copeland, formed in London in 1977. Their music was influenced by Jazz, Punk, and Reggae.

Another English band that started in London’s underground music scene about 12 years earlier was Pink Floyd. However, Pink Floyd is known for psychedelic and progressive rock. The principal song -writer of Pink Floyd, Roger Waters, will be live at Philips Arena this Thursday, November 18th. He will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the original release of The Wall. Waters will be performing the entire album during this monumental tour.
