Rock band The Police have confirmed they will open the 49th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles next Sunday - fuelling speculation they are planning a reunion tour.

The Message In A Bottle hitmakers have so far refused to confirm rumours they are reforming to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of their massive selling song Roxanne.

A The Recording Academy spokesperson says: "The Police join a stellar list of past Grammy Awards opening acts, which includes reunions and once-in-a-lifetime performances."

The 1980s supergroup - featuring Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers - broke up in 1984 but reformed briefly in 2003 to celebrate their inclusion into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. This will be the first time the Grammy winning band have performed at the prestigious music show.
