Whether Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland really are ready to call it a career or not, they can return to their separate corners for now knowing they played one hell of a 151-show reunion tour. (Plus they've got $358.8 million, minus costs, to split among them, having just put on the third-highest-grossing tour of all time.)
They had planned for awhile to close things out in New York, the scene of the original crime—their first U.S. gig nearly 30 years ago at the recently deceased punk-rock club CBGB.
"It's been a huge honor to get back with my good friends," Sting, who at one point was shown backstage via video screen getting a shave and a mani-pedi, told the audience tonight. "The real triumph of this tour is that we haven't strangled each other—that doesn't mean it hadn't crossed my mind. Or Andy's or Stewart's."
