The Police: Around the World, capturing moments from the first-ever world tour from The Police in 1980 and ’81, has been something of a favorite among fans of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame trio for decades. Today, May 20, the set has been reissued as The Police Around the World Restored & Expanded.

Looking back, having cameras rolling at all times during this formative period of the group’s existence was a very smart decision, capturing one of the biggest eras of the career of Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers.

Via a news release:

A poignant snapshot of this pivotal moment in their career, The Police: Around The World Restored & Expanded blends footage of the band performing live with intimate footage of Sting, Andy Summers, and Stewart Copeland exploring Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, India, Egypt, Greece, France, South America, and the US. The band was filmed on and off stage as they visited local monuments, tasted foreign cuisines, and organically grew a global fanbase.

On May 20, 2022, Mercury Studios presents The Police: Around The World Restored & Expanded on DVD+CD, Blu-ray+CD, and DVD+LP (pressed on silver vinyl). Originally available on VHS and laserdisc, the film is being presented on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time, with restored picture and remastered audio, as well as complete performances of four bonus songs featured in the documentary.

Additionally, The Police: Around The World Restored & Expanded includes never-before-released live audio on CD and LP.
