The rock trio The Police announced their first tour in decades Monday at a rehearsal at the Whisky a Go-Go as a throng of fans crowded near the legendary Sunset Strip nightclub.

The group, which led off Sunday night's Grammy Awards with a live performance of its hit "Roxanne," broke up in 1984, and members Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland have since pursued solo careers.

Some of the North American tour highlights include a headline performance at this year's July 16 Bonnaroo Festival, an appearance at Boston's Fenway Park on July 28 and two Madison Square Garden performances in New York City on Aug. 1 and 3.

Concert dates were also confirmed in Seattle, Denver, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Dallas, New Orleans, St. Louis, Toronto and Montreal.

Arthur Fogel, Live Nation Chairman of Global Music, also announced that the tour will continue this fall with dates in the U.K. and Europe, including appearances in Holland, Germany, Italy and France with additional countries to be announced. Additional dates in Mexico, South America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand are anticipated.

Tickets for the North American leg will range from $50 to $225. A portion of proceeds will go to WaterAid, an anti-poverty organization that seeks to provide poor people access to safe water.
