The Police confirm last ever UK show

The Police make their final UK appearance at Hard Rock Calling

The Police have confirmed that their appearance at Hard Rock Calling on 29 June will be their final ever UK appearance.

Hard Rock Calling takes place at London's Hyde Park on 28-29 June 2008, and as well as support from KT Tunstall, Starsailor, The Bangles and The Stranglers, the Flying Padovanis will also be on the bill. The band is led by Henry Padovani, co-founder of The Police and the original guitarist before Andy Summers replaced him.

More acts are going to be announced by Hard Rock Calling, and MusicRadar predicts that Sting, Stuart Copeland, Summers and Padovani will unite for a four-way encore.

The Police's final ever live show is in New York on 7 August.

The Hard Rock Calling bill for the 28 June features Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow and John Mayer.
