As expected, initial on-sales for the upcoming Police reunion tour sold out in minutes and more shows were quickly added. The band will also soon announce shows for Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on June 23, and McAfee Stadium in Oakland on June 13.
On Saturday, two dates were sold out for the Air Canada Centre in Toronto (July 22-23), Montreal sold out one (July 25) and announced a second for July 26 that will go up this weekend. Vancouver sold out the May 28 tour opener, and announced another on May 30 that goes up next weekend.
Today, two Madison Square Garden shows (Aug. 1, 3) went up and sold out in a few minutes, and a Giants Stadium show for Aug. 5 across the river in East Rutherford, N.J., was added. A July 28-29 visit to Boston’s Fenway Park also went clean.
The on-sales were “pretty damn hot,” Arthur Fogel, producer of the tour for TNA International, tells Billboard.com. “We knew it was strong, but it’s always nice to see it unfold in reality. I’m ecstatic.” The next on-sales will be on Feb. 26 for Giants Stadium, Seattle (June 6), Denver (June 9), and Phoenix (June 18).
