The Last Police Show Ever?

After a reunion tour that earned them hundreds of millions, the Police have announced that they're done with the whole live performing thing and will play what they're billing as their "Last Show Ever" this August in New York City. The announcement was made at a Times Square press conference yesterday.

The show will also mark 30 years of the Police playing to American audiences. Their first U.S. tour in 1978 opened with a gig at the now-defunct CBGB's.

The exact date and venue for the show will be announced soon, but expect ticket prices to be steep. The show will also function as a benefit for arts programming on the New York television stations Thirteen/WNET and WLIW.
