Police tour tickets selling fast
The Police
The tour will start in Vancouver in May
The Police reunion tour is fast selling out major venues in the US and Canada.

The rock trio announced they were reforming and planning a world tour shortly after performing at the Grammy Awards on 11 February.

In just over two weeks they have sold out shows in Denver, Seattle, Oakland, at the Giants Stadium in New Jersey and Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium.

The tour starts on 28 May in Vancouver and is also expected to visit Europe and the Far East.

The McAfee Stadium in Oakland has a 48,000 concert capacity, with the Giants Stadium holding 56,000 spectators and the Dodger Stadium 52,000.

Second shows have already been added in Denver, Seattle and Montreal.

When announcing the reunion, lead singer Sting joked he must be "certifiably insane" for getting back together with guitarist Andy Summers and drummer Stewart Copeland.
