Return of The Police - Shigemi in the news!

from Bloomberg News: The new Tour of The Police is already a success.

More than 1.77 million tickets for the tour have been sold so far, according to the band's publicist Clare Fisher at RMP. Tickets cost between $50 and $225 on online sites, though seats for some sold-out venues are on offer for $2,500 for two on EBay Inc.'s Web site.

But the cool thing: the media found my friend Shigemi at the concert. Shigemi is following the tour around the world.

``They made history here tonight,'' said Shig Hayashi, 40, a telecommunications engineer from Saitama, Japan, who said she quit her job of 13 years to attend Police concerts in Vancouver, New York and London. ``It was worth it.''
