MINNEAPOLIS -- Following an unforgettable performance that kicked-off the 49th Annual GRAMMY Awards broadcast Sunday night, The Police announced today a highly-anticipated nationwide tour - their first in more than 20 years - presented by Best Buy.

Best Buy has secured a set percentage of tickets at each venue specifically for existing Reward Zone program members, who will have a chance to buy the tickets days before they go on sale to the general public. To qualify for the presale, participants need to be 18 years old or older and must have a current Reward Zone program membership that was activated by February 1, 2007.
"At Best Buy we understand how passionate our customers are about music, and that's why we look for ways to bring unique entertainment experiences to our Reward Zone program members," said Gary Arnold, senior vice president of entertainment for Best Buy. "The Police Live in Concert is, without a doubt, the musical event of the year and Best Buy is helping to provide an unrivaled concert experience for our customers."
For the millions of Best Buy Reward Zone program members, this promises to be more than a musical milestone - it's a chance for once-in-a-lifetime views of Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland as they ignite the stage.
