The Police's final public performances before their 2007 reunion tour are finally coming to DVD on November 5th as part of the massive DVD package The Human Rights Concerts 1986-1998. The Police were broken up in 1986, but Sting decided to reform the group for the final three shows of the 1986 Amnesty International Conspiracy of Hope tour. They ended their last set by passing their instruments onto U2 for the finale of "I Shall Be Released," essentially the biggest band of the early 1980s passing the baton to the biggest band of the late 1980s.
Now we have a question for you: What is your favorite Police song? Feel free to vote for a big hit like "Roxanne" and "Every Breath You Take," a fan favorite like "Born in the 1950s" or a super deep cut like "Darkness" or "Bombs Away." Vote for whatever Police song, but please only vote once and only for a single song.
