The Police Certifiable

Aired Wednesday, March 4, at 12:00 a.m. on CPTV

Rocketing to stardom and worldwide fame in the early 1980s, Andy Summers, Stewart Copeland, and Sting-better known as The Police-boldly revitalized the 1970s rock 'n' roll scene with their signature fusion of punk, New Wave, and reggae sounds. Despite the release of a host of hit singles including "Roxanne," "Message in a Bottle," and "Every Breath You Take," five smash albums, and six Grammy Awards between 1980 and 1984, the Police parted waysin 1986, with front-man Sting embarking on a hugely successful solo career.More than two decades after the break-up and over thirty years since the initial release of "Roxanne," Sting, Summers, and Copeland teamed up one last time in 2007 to launch the band's farewell tour.Great Performances captures the Police in this once-in-a-lifetime event, in concert from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
