This week’s featured artist is [lastfm]The Police[/lastfm], a band that rocketed to popularity in the early 1980s only to cease to exist just as quickly when the band broke up in 1986.

Just a couple years ago, however, the three members of The Police resurrected the most successful era in their respective careers with a worldwide reunion tour. This begs the question, how did their performances from the 2007/2008 tour stack up against the performances of their heyday?

To find out, we compiled a series of videos from live shows, and every day this week we’ll be bringing you a new then-and-now comparison of The Police performing some of their biggest hits. Today we compare Every Little Thing She Does is Magic, 1980s vs. 2000s.

Every Little Thing She Does is Magic as performed by the original incarnation of The Police:

And again, this time performed by the reunited band:

    As good as they “were”, they sucked live then, they suck live now. No band was worse at reproducing their own music live than the Police, except maybe Led Zeppelin.
