The Police held a press conference in Times Square today to announce its "last ever concert" will be held in New York City this summer. Besides New York mayor Michael Bloomberg mentioning that the show will probably be held indoors, the remainder of the details were kept under wraps. The band also announced a $1 million donation to be directed towards the MillionTreesNYC tree-planting program (the mayor's line about making "every breath we take cleaner and greener" was met with groans), which will be matched with an additional million in public funds. The concert itself will benefit New York public television. Mayor Bloomberg presented Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers with keys to the city and praised the band for "thirty years of staying at the top of your game" over its "long career." Anyone with information on what the band was up to between 1986 and 2007 — which only Bloomberg seems to have — is encouraged to contact Rock and Roll Daily posthaste.
