Police drummer Stewart Copeland told Billboard that he wants to bend the reunion rules the band agreed upon for its tour, only for its headlining Bonnaroo show. The rules, as I understand them, ban additional musicians and back-up singers, which I applaud. Why Copeland wants to break them for Bonnaroo is a mystery. Does he want some hippie jam festival with 20 “special” guests? Fuck that noise. The Bonnaroo show is the only one I’m abe to see, and I don’t want it all assed up so that Phil Lesh or some hippie fruitcake can jam with the Police.
Now if he means changing up the rehearsed set a bit, I’m all for that. Pull out the obscure shit, like “Fallout” or “Peanuts.”
