The New Mexico Randy Meisner concert was held at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, New Mexico. Randy Meisner and the Silverados opened for the Beach Boys in the Greyhound Arena. This was one of several concerts that Randy opened for the Beach Boys in February 1981.
A fraternity member threw a jersey to Therese Heston (Silverados back-up singer) on stage. She put it on and wore it throughout the entire show. A video of Therese Heston singing at a friend’s house in 2012 is below.

1981 Silver Pack Yearbook
“After a couple of songs an SAE threw his purple and white jersey to Meisner’s female back-up vocalist who pulled it on, to the audience’s delight, and wore it throughout the rest of their 40-minute performance.”
Concert review in the Eastern Sun-Press (campus newspaper) – Feb. 26, 1981
“Jackson Browne assisted Meisner in a few lyrics changes that transformed ‘One More Song’ into a mythical tale of Meisner’s last night as a member of the Eagles. Don Henley and Glenn Frey of the Eagles sang harmonies on the track.”

The Odessa American (Odessa, TX) – Feb. 19, 1981
“Now Meisner, a veteran of several bands, is finally having some solo success. His Epic album, ‘One More Song,’ includes two hit singles — ‘Deep Inside My Heart’ (with Kim Carnes) and ‘Hearts On Fire’.”
