Stewart Copeland Announces North America Tour for his Project, ‘Police Deranged For Orchestra’
This summer sees the much-anticipated world premiere of Stewart Copeland’s new orchestral project, ‘Police Deranged for Orchestra’at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam on 22 August 2020. Following this, Stewart Copeland will travel across the Atlantic in the Fall to continue his tour in North America where he will perform in Seattle, Vancouver, Nashville and Atlanta with more dates to be announced.
‘Police Deranged for Orchestra’ is a high-energy orchestral celebration of legendary rock star and composer Stewart Copeland and his career as the founder of one rock’s most beloved bands, The Police. With more than 60 million records sold worldwide, six Grammy awards, and induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Police – founded when Copeland recruited Andy Sommers and Sting in 1977 – have been a defining force in rock music for over forty years. Police Deranged is bursting with The Police’s biggest hits including “Roxanne”, “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” and ‘Message in a Bottle’ plus highlights from Copeland’s vast catalogue, all newly arranged (or “de-ranged”) by Copeland himself. This incredible rock ‘n’ roll experience will feature Copeland on drums alongside the orchestras and guest guitarist and vocalists.
Copeland will return to Europe later this year for the premiere of his new opera, Electric Saint, at Staatskapelle Weimar and there will also be more chances to watch the exciting genre-crossing project, ‘Police Deranged For Orchestra’ as we look forward to announcing further European tour dates for the 20/21 season.
