Police reunite for Grammys

Band, which last played in 1984, opens show

The Police are back in business.

The rock trio — Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers — will reunite and open the Grammy Awards on Feb. 11 from the Staples Center. Kudocast is on CBS.

There have been rumors of the band reuniting for a tour this summer in the United Kingdom, according to a London newspaper. Stewart formed the band 30 years ago with its first hit being “Roxanne.” In the ’80s, the Police would become megastars and record such hits as “Message in a Bottle,” “Walking on the Moon,” “Every Breath You Take” and “Don’t Stand So Close to Me.”

The band last played together at the 2003 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. Prior to that, its last gigs were on the “Synchronicity” tour in early 1984.

Also announced to perform at the Grammys are Joan Baez, Melissa Etheridge, Jennifer Hudson, Queen Latifah, Chris Rock and Stevie Wonder.

Show is produced by John Cossette Prods. Cossette and Ken Erlich are exec producers.
