Stewart Copeland new online store

On this day in 1978 The Police were signed to A&M Records. The signing came only 8 months after the band played their first gig as a three-piece comprised of Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers under The Police moniker.

In his memoir Broken Music, Sting recalled the day: "All the A&M executives and company accountants supposedly have copies of 'Roxanne' in their tape decks, and we are told it is the first record in a long time that the promotion staff have asked to hear more than once. Stewart, Andy, and I go to the plush company offices off the Fulham Road, where the president, Derek Green, greets us like long-lost sons, and 'Roxanne' is playing triumphantly on the sound system throughout the entire building."

The anniversary of this milestone date was chosen to announce the opening of The Police's new and improved online store, which includes exclusive apparel and accessories, key titles in the band's catalog and great deals on memorabilia. Take a look around and be sure to check back often, as new items will be added regularly.

The staff has also improved accessibility at so that visiting both the site and the store on your mobile phone or tablet will now be a much more user-friendly experience.
