The Police are on tour again--very cool.

I saw their first ever USA appearence at a little joint down under the overpass of RT25A (1973?)--God were they LOUD for such a little place. My ears were bleeding. And still ring to this day...

Any of you older LI guys remember My Fathers Place? Great venue...

I heard Stew wasn't impressed with the 1st few reunion performances I guess. not sure if things have tightened up or not or what the issue was exactly.
I'd go now if I had the chance, even if they aren't as good, since I never got to see them before.

Before Global Warming--there was a snow storm on Long Island every other week in those days--I remember a crowd--but not only 20 people...

I grew up in Manhasset so MFP was a 10 minute car ride for me.. I lost track of how many cool shows I saw there....

I remember seeing Trower there and he was UNGODLY loud!!! I think that my ears rang for a week...

Manhasset, Kage? Did you play Lacrosse for Alan Lowe-Bob Ruhle? Great tradition there. Bethpage (the late great Fran McCall) always had great teams too, but we could never get by Manhasset when we got to Hofstra...
