Sorry but the under card blew The Police away, of course I think I was in the minority when I say that.
Lords Of The New Church - Russian Roulette.
Gang Of Four - To Hell With Poverty
The Beat - Stand Down Margaret
And last but certainly not least, these blew me away...the very first time I saw them live.
Bono was a pretentious tit even then, lol, but what a fantastic set by a fantastic band.
What a day!
I was 16years old and nothing like this had ever happened in North East England in my lifetime.
By the time The Police came on they had no chance of topping the support acts. (To be honest I only liked 2 or 3 Police tracks at the time, I
appreciate them a little bit more now that middle age is approaching!)
Thanks for stimulating the memory Helmutt, it is a long time since I thought about that day.
