Sting will never reunite with The Police.
The 65-year-old singer songwriter - who made up one third of the British rock band before splitting in 1986 - has revealed he never plans to reunite with his former band members drummer Stewart Copeland and guitarist Andy Summers.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper about a reunion, he said: ''I haven't gone back, this is part of my musical life. I play rock 'n' roll every night of my working life so It's not like I am going to return and be just like The Police. I am the f***ing Police.''

Currently nominated for Best Original Score Written For The Theatre, rock legend Sting appeared at the 2015 Tony Nominees reception held at the Paramount Hotel in New York, unusually sporting a beard. The singer composed the score for the nautical England set play 'The Last Ship'.
Sting will replace his good friend Jimmy Nail in the Broadway show, 'The Last Ship'.
Sting has joined the cast of flagging Broadway musical The Last Ship in a bid to save the $15 million production. The Police rock star will appear in the show - the first he has written - about his ship-building hometown in northeast England, appearing in eight shows a week until January 10.
Sting will play the lead in his own Broadway musical, The Last Ship
The show officially opened in late October to mixed reviews from critics, though Sting's original songs won praise. However, the production has lost roughly $75,000 a week since previews began in September, according to the New York Times.

The actor is among five honourees that will be recognised at the annual Kennedy Center Honors
Tom Hanks is a mammoth actor who has delighted fans with extraordinary performances for just short of 40 years. He started his career by providing us with some delightfully 80s classics in the era of big hair and bright colours with greats such as Splash, Big and Turner & Hooch. In the 90s he gave us a cacophony of feel-good flicks including Sleepless in Seattle, Forrest Gump and the first of one of the most successful trilogies of all time, Toy Story.
Tom Hanks' illustrious career is being recognised at the Kennedy Center Honors
In the noughties Hanks got his serious side out and audiences were treated to Road to Perdition, The Da Vinci Code and its sequel Angels and Demons. Sheriff Woody came out in style twice more for Toy Story 2 and 3 and Hanks has been at the helm of some of the best films of the past few years as a main star in Captain Phillips and Saving Mr Banks.

The British rocker wants his kids to know the meaning of money and achievement.
Sting doesn't want his children to inherit his £180m fortune so that they can earn their own way in the world. The British rocker revealed his rather divisive plans in an interview with the Mail on Sunday, making it clear that his six children haven't had and won't have an easy ride and will have to stand on their own two feet.
The 62 year-old former Police star, who is one of Britain's wealthiest musicians, has revealed that he places an emphasis on encouraging his children "to succeed on their own merit" which they are happy to do. What's more, Sting claims that his fortune is depleting because of hefty outgoings.
He said: "I told them there won't be much money left because we are spending it. We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend, and there isn't much left. I certainly don't want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks. They have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate."

The 62 year-old musician, who is from a working class family, has warned his kids: "There won't be much money left because we are spending it... they have to work."
Sting is no pushover.
The 62 year-old music star recently revealed that none of his £180 million fortune will be left to his children.
Sting grew up in a working-class family in Wallsend, North Tyneside, and it seems he wants his six kids to have an idea of what that is like, and not to be privileged all their lives.

It's the Tonys, is anyone really surprised that it was a great show?
Not only are the Tonys hilarious, entertaining… glittery, etc. – they’re also pretty democratic. In an over-the top show hosted by Hugh Jackman, top prizes went to A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Beautiful: The Carol King Musical, as well as competitors Robert Schenkkan’s All the Way for best play, to Hedwig and the Angry Inch for best musical revival, and to A Raisin in the Sun for best play revival, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ten years after his first time hoSting, Jackman has gotten even better.
As for Hugh Jackman, who hosted the musical theatre awards for the first time in a decade, the Wolverine star did not disappoint. Jackman gave it his all straight from the opening sequence, which to be fair, is often the centerpiece of the show. That Wolverine training must have come in handy, as Jackman he hopped his way through the theater and backstage, down the aisles and into an elevator before making his way to the main stage for the show's opening.
