Most of the critics have provided the reunion tour shows glowing critiques. However, after the 1st show, Stewart himself wrote that the overall performance was “lame.” He also wrote that 1 of Sting’s song endings was a leap of a “petulant pansy” and that Summer was “in Idaho” when he was half a bar off with Copeland’s drumming.
Some media picked this up as a fight or argument, but it was really just selecting at his other band members. Each Sting and Copeland took it as light-hearted teasing. Stewart has stated that soon after the set, he and his band mates fell laughing into each other’s arms.

Whilst the tour could end with a hopeful message of “We’ll see you again!” from Sting, he has said that The Police will not get back with each other soon after the reunion tour. His exact quote is, “There will be no new album, no huge new tour, as soon as we’re done with our reunion tour, that is it for The Police.”
