12. THE POLICE, 11/24/83

Location: Kemper Arena, Kansas City, MO
Support act(s): UB40
In the company of: Gregg H.

After having seen them this past summer in St. Louis, I knew what to expect. This was a band at the pinnacle of success…God, they knocked “Thriller” out of the number one spot! What’s not to love? Sadly for all Police fans, this was to be their final world tour for many years.

Looking into my crystal ball, I predict they’ll regroup and do it all again in 24 years!

UB40 sang “Red Red Wine.” But a nice change from the usual Police opener Joan Jett. Enough already.
