Want to get a closer look at one of the most famous bands of all time as they embark on their first world tour? It’s possible. The police agreed to make a documentary in 1979 and 1980, which would be re-released in May 2022 on DVD + CD, Blu-Ray + CD, and DVD + LP (blue vinyl). Police: Around the World, Reclaiming and Expanding.
The band, made up of Sting, Andy Summers, and Stewart Copeland, are closely followed as they tour Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, India, Egypt, Greece, France, South America and the United States. All this while on a big break with songs like “Roxanne” and “Message In A Bottle.”
On this tour, you’ll see them visit local landmarks, sample the delicacies each country has to offer, and naturally build a fan base on site. An amazing experience that can be seen and heard, because her performance was also recorded during the tour. These previously unreleased recordings of their shows in Japan, Hong Kong, and England can be heard on CD and LP.
The passion and enthusiasm of the band members is particularly evident in this time capsule: “Like Napoleon, we wanted the world. From the chaotic and hectic atmosphere of London at the time, we conceived the idea of going all over the world and filming the whole adventure. As far as we know, no band has ever done music “Rock it at all. We had enough popularity to book around the world. Plans were made,” says Andy Summers.
Police: “Around the World Restored and Expanded” will be available May 20.
