The Police adds second Hawaii concert on Feb. 17

By overwhelming demand, The Police will give a second concert Feb. 17 at Blaisdell Arena.

The additional playdate was added after the first show, Feb. 16, sold out in 2.5 hours last Saturday.

Tickets — $75, $95 and $225 plus fees — go on sale at 9 a.m. this Saturday at LiveNation.com, Ticketmaster outlets and ticketmaster.com. Call 877-750-4400.

The Police — Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers — are the hottest ticket of 2007, according to Billboard. The trio has been performing worldwide as part of its reunion tour; the Honolulu stop is the finale though a world tour is expected to resume mid-2008.

The rock trio reached its peak with the 1983 album "Synchronicity," with such hit tunes as "Every Breath You Take," "Wrapped Around Your Finger" and "King of Pain." The band went their separate ways in 1984 but were reunited for a performance at this year's Grammy Awards.

There is a six-ticket purchase limit.
