The Police are about to tread where only the Rolling Stones have gone before. The reunited trio has booked a show on their 30th anniversary tour at the Churchill Downs horse racing track in Louisville, Kentucky. Churchill Downs is the home of the Kentucky Derby, which is the first part in thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown series, and the Stones played the first major rock concert there back in September, with Alice Cooper as the opening act. Tickets will go on sale next Monday (March 26th).
According to the Associated Press, Police frontman Sting has a connection to the Kentucky Derby. The 2005 race winner was named Giacomo, and the horse was named after Sting's son. Giacomo the horse is owned by Jerry Moss, who was one of the founder's of the Police's American label A&M Records.
The Police tour starts May 28th at General Motors Place in Vancouver, British Columbia, and there are dates scheduled into November.
