After their successful world tour last year, The Police have announced their last show ever. This final concert –– for which ticket and venue information have yet to be announced –– will be a fundraiser with proceeds benefiting the production of arts programming for public television stations Thirteen/WNET and WLIW New York. Tickets will be available nationally online via the Thirteen/WNET and WLIW Web sites.
Additionally, Sting and the Police announced that they will contribute $1 million to Mayor Bloomberg's MillionTreesNYC initiative –– a gift the city will match –– to plant trees all over New York City. During the conference, the mayor presented each member of the Police with his own key to New York City, and Sting presented the mayor with an all–access backstage pass that he said could be used at "any Police concert."
