Sending out an SOS

Looks as though the rock group The Police might be playing in a police state–Cuba:

The Police may be giving their Cuban fans a free show this Christmas.

The super rock group, which recently reunited for a sell-out world tour, has received an invitation from the Cuban government to perform there in December.

The Havana show would be the last one in North America, ending the Police’s massive tour that begins on May 28 in Vancouver.

The invite stems from a recent visit to Havana over the 2006 Christmas holiday by Sting and Trudie Styler where they met with many local musicians and poets.

Gee, whatever happened to the concept behind Artists United Against Apartheid? You know, “We Ain’t Gonna Play Sun City,” the whole boycott of South Africa? Oh, that’s right, Castro is a LEFT-wing dictator, so he’s okay.

Meanwhile, 11 million Cubans are sending out an SOS…
