Around the World, capturing moments from the first-ever world tour from The Police in 1979 and 1980, has been something of a favorite among Police fans for decades — and on May 20, it will be reissued as The Police Around the World Restored & Expanded.

An anticipated release from the legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame trio, the set was announced on Monday and boasts an intimate look at the then-rising band during 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. Boasting songs from their first two albums recorded in Japan, Hong Kong, and England, it showcases The Police playing with a frenzy and passion that would soon make them the biggest band in the world.
