14. I bet that's the same tour I saw

I saw it in St. Petersburg, Fl...The Grass Roots and Gary Puckett and the Union Gap were also on the bill.

I married my wife in july of 86 but I had been dating her for 2 years before that. She had 2 sons from her previous marriage and they were always complaining that I went to concerts without them. (The were 5 and 9 when I started dating her). Concerts were my hobby and I did go to a lot of them but they were almost exclusively death and thrash metal shows back then and I probably would have taken the oldest with me but their mother said no. SO I made a deal with them - they were big fans of The Monkees as it was in reruns on MTV at the time and I told them (thinking Hah! Never gonna happen) that if the Monkees ever came around I would take them to the show.

Well I'll be damned if they didn't announce a reunion tour 3 DAYS after we made that deal and one of the dates was in St Pete on a saturday. A deal is a deal so we went and we had a great time.
