    I was there, but remember very little. My memories are:

    What’s that guy with weird hair doing up there? I do believe I liked the show.
    Stipe asking the audience to come up on the dance floor, the orchestra pit cover, young Atlanteans coming and dancing in new wave clothes, tiger print dresses and such. Sting during the Police’s set said we can’t use our dance floor because it’s unsafe. The orchestra pit cover had been removed.
    The political song “ Body Count” which I quite enjoyed, Stip beginning it chanting Reagan! Reagan! Reagan! To start it.
    As best I remember I was positively imptessed by the band but remember the Police’s show a little more.
    I had no idea I was watching the first big concert of a legend in the making.
