Again, Joan Jett opened and did a fine job. But the obvious attraction was the Police, the then “Biggest Band in the World.”
Here’s a good trivia question for you: What album dethroned Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” from the #1 spot on Billboard where it had lived for months? You guessed it. And what an album it was.
