TICKETS TORN IN HALF: August 4,1984-THE PRETENDERS/ SIMPLE MINDS@ Jones Beach  My buddy Chris got married that afternoon and after the reception I met my family and friends for a great evening of music with SIMPLE MINDS and The (new lineup) PRETENDERS. TIME THE AVENGER opened the PRETENDERS set and they closed with MYSTERY ACHIEVEMENT. Toss in I GO TO SLEEP, STOP YOUR SOBBING, BACK ON THE CHAIN GANG and BAD BOYS GET SPANKED and I’m okay.
