During the 2014 FUV fall member drive, we're shining a spotlight on live concerts and performances. The FUV on-air staffers compiled individual lists of five memorable and marvelous shows that have stayed with them over the years, for one reason or another.
Corny O'Connell's Five Favorite Concerts:
The Police, Brendan Byrne Arena (April 1982)
The Police were four albums along and riding a huge wave of popularity. They had the audience locked in a pulsing, hypnotic groove from start to finish. It was amazing to see this concrete structure moving in unison with the crowd. Afterward as the mass of people flowed out, I had one of those missed connections with a beautiful, brown-eyed brunette—it still haunts me.
