Sting won't rejoin Police

Sting says he will never reform The Police again because he thought their last reunion tour lacked ''energy''.
Great deals on musical instruments

Sting has ruled out another reunion with The Police.

The 58-year-old singer - who took part in a worldwide tour with his old band starting in 2007 and ending in 2008 - isn't interested in hitting the road again because he found the music uninspiring.

He said: "It wasn't easy. There was nothing new in it - no new songs, no new energy, no desire to take that as a platform and move somewhere else."

The 30th anniversary tour reunited Sting - real name Gordon Sumner - with his former bandmates, drummer Stewart Copeland and guitarist Andy Summers.

Comparing the tour to a divorced couple reuniting, Sting says nothing could tempt him to do it again.

He explained: "People reacted to The Police coming back as if mum and dad had got together, you could see that emotion in the audience. But who really wants to go and live with the wife you divorced? I won't do it again. But I don't need to I've done it now."

Despite his negative feelings, Sting doesn't regret the reunion, saying: "I had an instinct that it was the right time to realise that asset, and I was right. It was purely an exercise in nostalgia."
