I was just flipping through the channels and came upon VH-1 Classic, the network that not only still plays videos but the bulk of them are classics from the 1980's. The video that was playing as I tuned in was "Heartbreak Beat" by The Psychedelic Furs and I was immediately transported back to a perfect evening during the Summer of 1987. That night, I was at the San Diego State University Outdoor Amphitheatre watching the Furs on the tour supporting "Midnight to Midnight," the album that contained "Heartbreak Beat." What a magical experience. They were terrific that night; the crowd was large and enthusiastic, the weather perfect and a pretty girl was on my arm. My thanks to Richard Butler and The Furs for a wonderful memory. They are touring and I recommend you catch them if they come to a venue near you.....I will!
Update: I went to The Furs fan website which has a listing of all the dates they have played and realized that the concert I attended was actually on May, 22 1987; late Spring instead of Summer. In any event, I always think of the Summer of '87 when I hear The Furs. It was an amazing concert and a great time to be alive!
