Maybe just to celebrate their 30th anniversary, maybe for longer than that.

Let’s think this through.

[O]n Thursday night at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Sting dedicated a lute version of “Message in a Bottle” to the pair of former comrades who happened to be seated in the auditorium.

As exciting as the prospect of a reunion might be to Police fans, ask yourself: does the world really need “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” performed with a lyre and harpsichord? Because that’s probably what the “new sound” is going to be like.

We’ll make a deal. They can use whatever instruments they want, just so long as Sting never wears this outfit again.
