MADRID - After a sell-out concert in Barcelona in September, legendary pop-rock band The Police will return to Spain next year to kick off the Bilbao BBK Live 2008 festival in the northern Basque city.
Organisers said yesterday that the concert on 4 July is so far The Police's only confirmed date in Spain next year, and noted that the performance is expected to be bolder and more ambitious than the group's 27 September concert in Barcelona. More than 55,000 tickets for that concert were sold in the space of just six hours, and organisers of the Bilbao event are expecting to see similar demand when tickets for the 4 July concert go on sale across Spain today at EUR 72 each.
Bilbao BBK Live 2008 will continue until 6 July with a line-up that organisers said will include several other well-known international groups.
