About the Music

Stewart Copeland’s Police Deranged for Orchestra is a high-energy orchestral celebration of legendary rock star and composer Stewart Copeland and his career as the founder of one of rock’s most beloved bands, The Police. With more than 60 million records sold worldwide, six GRAMMY awards, and induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Police – founded when Copeland recruited Andy Summers and Sting in 1977 – have been a defining force in rock music for over forty years.

Police Deranged for Orchestra is bursting with The Police’s biggest hits, including ‘Roxanne’, ‘Don’t Stand So Close To Me’ and ‘Message in a Bottle’. With Copeland on drums, three singers, guitarist and the full symphony orchestra, these unique compositions – also arranged or “deranged” by Copeland – give new life to classic songs and select hits from the career of one of the generation’s greatest and most influential artists.

In anticipation of his arrival at Blossom Music Center this summer, Stewart Copeland created a Spotify playlist “For Cleveland” of his current listening, inspirations, and music projects he has been involved on:
