You mentioned the US Festival, did you go by chance?
1983. Saturday and Sunday, though I was a metalhead so Saturday turned out to be a major eye opener for a guy who thought the only viable ear candy at the time was metal! Boingo, INXS, and The Clash blew me away. Of course, on Sunday, yours truly was a pig in slop, in spite of Van Halen's dowright embarrassing

Triumph, Priest, and the Scorpions were unbelievable.

As for Missing Persons, they have always been a guilty pleasure. I like the tempo and the guitar sound. Dale was just 'different' enough to keep me listening and the little outfits kept a hormone laden teenage dude interested for sure. Did you go to Us?
