Highlight Story

Pioneering rock band The Police reunited to perform their classic song 'Roxanne' at the opening of the Grammy Awards Show.

The trio led by Sting are likely to announce a full summer tour to mark the 30th anniversary of the release of 'Roxanne'.

The band has only played a few times together since splitting in 1984 after seven years at the pinnacle of the rock world, winning over both critics and fans with their vibrant, post-punk sound on songs like 'Message In A Bottle', 'Don't Stand So Close to Me', 'Every Breath You Take' and 'King Of Pain'.

Their jazzy version of 'Roxanne' got a standing ovation Sunday night from the 12,000 music-industry insiders gathered for the Grammy's at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.

Front-man Sting is now 55, guitarist Andy Summers is 64, and drummer Stewart Copeland is 54.
