About the artist
Their 1978 debut album, Outlandos d'Amour, reached number six in the UK, and their second album Reggatta de Blanc became the first of five consecutive UK number one albums. Synchronicity from 1983 was number one in both the UK and the US, and sold over 8 million copies in the US alone. The Police have sold over 75 million records, making them one of the world's best-selling artists of all time. They were the world's highest-earning musicians in 2008, thanks to their reunion tour.
