Thousands of people will pack Croke Park tomorrow night as rock legends The Police take to the stage as part of their global reunion tour.

Some 82,000 tickets went on sale for the Dublin concert last April, all of which were snapped up within a matter of hours by avid fans.

The band’s last album went on sale more than 20 years ago, just before the group split in the mid 1980s.

Earlier this year it emerged the legendary trio – Sting (Gordon Sumner), guitarist Andy Summers and drummer Stewart Copeland – would reunite for a massive global tour dubbed The Police Reunion to mark their 30th anniversary.

It opened in Vancouver on May 28 in front of 22,000 fans at one of two nearly sold-out concerts.

The band is due on stage at 7.45pm tomorrow night and will be finished by 10pm.

With only one support act, Friction Plane, concert-goers are urged to leave promptly after the event and have respect for residents living in the Croke Park area.

Gardaí are warning of traffic restrictions in the stadium’s vicinity, with special car parks set up to accommodate fans.

Local residents and business people will be issued with passes and there will be parking restrictions from 9am and traffic restrictions from 2pm.
