    If they aren't playing Summerfest this year, I'll be one pissed off mofo.

    Wish I could have gone to the Whiskey A Go Go today, but I'm interested to know the SoCal dates (L.A., Anaheim, San Diego) when they're announced.

    This is like it was when the Eagles made their comeback. I saw their first concert back. It was great, but I had lawn tickets and couldn't see them too well. I hope the Police do this summer tour and then do it again in the fall.

    I saw on Sting's Web site that he's touring in support of his own recent stuff beginning Feb. 18 through mid-March. I wonder if The Police will have any new material to promote, say like having one new song in conjunction with releasing another greatest hits album or something like that. For my money, I still think any tru Police fan should pony up for the box set. It's worth every penny.

    So is this the most anticipated tour in years? I can't remember another group coming back after being away for so long, especially a group that left on top.

    Friend of mine says even the 20-year-olds, born several years after the breakup, are digging this.

    I would say the Police tour is a bigger deal for most people, but in terms of time off before a reunion it'll be tough to top Cream.

    I don't even remember Cream getting back together. When was that?

    Because Every Breath is among the litany of songs that top rappers have ripped off and gotten rich off of.

    True, but Puffy twisted it around enough that most kids probably don't even know of the original song.

    Junkie, I'm SHOCKED you wuld feel that way about the biggest reunion . . . . . .

    Though of course, you're right, considering the rancor between those two.

    I also saw the Eagles, on their fourth show back (they played the hell out of Irvine meadows that week) and later on the stadium tour. They were abolutely amazing, ticket stub reads 35 bucks for a lawn seat. Now they charge exhorbitant prices, both for their fan club and for concert tickets. The mentioning of them in relation to the Police is apt.

    I'm a member of the Metallica club. It's 45 bucks a year, which pays off greatly when it's time to get concert tickets. Then the tickets themselves are 55 bucks or 75 bucks for floor. The police are charging 100 bucks for a fan club membership, in which you get the photo with the fake signatures, early tickets and access to an online store, just like Metallica.

    I really want to see these guys, but I'm hoping it's not a huge price gouge. I am not optimistic.
