Alright, Police fans, this is for you. Apparently it's next to impossible to get front row tickets at The Police's shows--the tickets aren't even open for purchase to the general public. But now, The Police, who are coming to town on May 21 to the Superpages.com Center, are offering fans a chance to get within Gordo's sweat-drop vicinity. Says the press release:
"In their support of the fight against poverty, The Police are offering fans an exclusive opportunity to bid on front-row tickets and ticket packages, unavailable to the general public. All ticket packages will include of pairs of front row tickets and concert tour programs signed by the band with select packages also including access to sound check and backstage tours. Proceeds will benefit the band’s nonprofit partner Unitus, a worldwide leader at scaling innovative solutions to global poverty."
I'm guessing this is gonna get too expensive for my measly pay-rate, but if you're swimming in dough, here's the link for you to go bidding at, Guy Who Still Thinks The Police Are Awesome. --Pete Freedman
