The show was previously available only on VHS and Laserdisc, and has had the visuals restored and the audio remixed and mastered for its first-ever release on DVD and Blu-ray. 4 complete performances from the show are included as DVD & BD bonus features, and will be bundled with live audio on CD or LP.

Around The World follows The Police on their first world tour in 1979 and 1980, as they visit 6 continents building their fanbase show-by-show, country-by-country, song-by-song. In between the performances, the film offers a jovial glimpse of the band as they travel around the world and their visits to local sights. Around The World is presented with restored picture and remastered audio, and includes complete performances of 4 songs featured in the documentary.
Recorded during The Police’s first world tour, the CD & LP showcases Sting, Andy Summers, & Stewart Copeland playing with a frenzy and passion that would make them the biggest band in the world.
