Police will call it quits in NYC


The Police are going to wrap things up pretty much in the same place they started: New York City.

The band announced this week that they'll play their "last ever" show this summer in New York --  though the exact date and venue haven't been decided yet.

"We kicked off our very first American tour at CBGB's in 1978 and this summer, 30 years later, our journey will come full circle as we play our final show here in New York City," the band said on their official website.

The Police also pledged to donate $1-million to the city to plant 10,000 trees and said the final concert's proceeds will go to fund public television in New York.

The band is still traveling around North American on its reunion tour, which isn't set to end until early August. The Police have two shows coming up in Florida -- May 16 in Orlando and May 17 in West Palm Beach.
