The ' Synchronicity' tour finished in March 1984 and the three went their separate ways.
Copeland to movie scoring, Summers to guitar duets and jazz, and Sting initially to acting.
A lead role in "The Bride" and supporting parts in "Plenty" and "Julia and Julia" followed before Sting picked up a guitar again. In June 1985, Sting released his first solo album ' The Dream Of The Blue Turtles' and it was a revelation.
Featuring the cream of America's young, black jazz musicians - Branford Marsalis, Kenny Kirkland, Omar Hakim and Darryl Jones - the album showed that Sting had lost none of his songwriting ability by being outside of the Police camp.
In the late 70's he had appeared in a couple of movies - a minor part in Chris Petit's "Radio On" and an excellent cameo in Franc Roddam's "Quadrophenia" but "Brimstone and Treacle" was a major role and Sting took up a good deal of screen time opposite Joan Plowright and Denholm Elliot.
The Police also contributed music to the movie's soundtrack and indeed Sting had a surprise solo hit with the track ' Spread A Little Happiness'.
Their tenacity paid off though as they slowly built a loyal following, got some all important air-play, and won over their audiences with a combination of new wave toughness and reggae rhythms.
The band returned to the UK to find the reissued ' Roxanne' single charting, and played a sell-out tour of mid-size venues. The debut album ' Outlandos d' Amour' (Oct 78) delivered three sizeable hits with ' Roxanne', ' Can't Stand Losing You' and ' So Lonely' which in turn led to a headlining slot at the '79 Reading Festival which won the band some fine reviews, but it was with ' Reggatta de Blanc' (Oct 79) that the band stepped up a gear.So The Police did the unthinkable - they went to America.The early tours are the stuff of legend - bargain flights to the USA courtesy of Freddie Laker's pioneering Skytrain; driving their own van and humping their own equipment from gig to gig; and playing to miniscule audiences at the likes of CBGB's in New York and The Rat Club in Boston.Reggatta's first single, ' Message In A Bottle', streaked to number one and the album's success was consolidated further when ' Walking On The Moon' also hit the top slot. 1980 saw them undertake a world tour with stops on all continents - including the first rock concerts in Bombay - and the band eventually returned to the UK exhausted, for two final shows in Sting's hometown of Newcastle.Much of this groundbreaking tour was captured on the ' Police Around The World' video and a BBC documentary entitled ' The Police in the East'.

Ever the businessman, Copeland took the name The Police figuring it would be good publicity, and the three started gigging round landmark punk venues like The Roxy, Marquee, Vortex and Nashville in London.
