The Police are to perform at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium in October as part of their comeback world tour.
Sting said the decision to reform was like 'a light bulb went off'
The gig, on 19 October, will be the band's last concert of their European tour, and one of four UK performances. The band are not playing Wembley.
Lead singer Sting announced in February that the band were getting back together after 23 years.
Stadium managers said this was one of several rock events they were hoping to bring to the stadium this year.
WRU Group Chief Executive Roger Lewis said: "This is fantastic news for the Millennium Stadium and for Wales.
"It again confirms the status of the stadium as a venue which can attract the world's best bands to our capital city."
The Police will be following fellow seventies rocker Rod Stewart who plays the Millennium Stadium in July.
The band played together last month in America
Their worldwide tour was announced last month when the band - which stopped touring in 1984 when Sting left to take on a solo career - reformed to perform at the Grammys in the US.
Before that, after bursting onto the music scene in 1977, the band dominated the pop charts worldwide with five number 1 albums and top 10 hit singles, including classics like Message in a Bottle, Every Breath You Take and Walking on the Moon.
Giving his reasons for asking fellow members Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers to tour again, Sting said " a light bulb went off and I found myself calling the other two to say 'hey, we should go on tour'."
The 30th anniversary tour will begin in Vancouver in May and take in sell-out dates north America before moving to UK in September and Europe the following month.
