One of my 1980s fanboy dreams came true on April 7, 2013 when I saw The Fixx perform at The Bell House in Brooklyn.  The 80s new wave/rockers have a new album out called “Beautiful Friction,” and the classic lineup has reunited for this tour.  Over the course of the hour and a half set, a majority of tracks from the new album were played and if you haven’t really followed The Fixx in a while, you should definitely check out their new record as it’s really good.

But the show was not all about the new record.  Many of The Fixx’ most beloved tracks were played including two of my personal favorites “Less Cities, More Moving People” and “Secret Separation,” which was played as an unannounced second encore!  Lead singer Cy Curnin threw in a bit of Tina Turner’s “Better Be Good To Me” at the end of the song (and if you’ll recall, Cy appears in the music video).   Stay tuned as a video of “Secret Separation” will be coming soon!

The classics “One Thing Leads To Another,” “Red Skies” and “Saved by Zero” were also performed and both Cy and the band sounded as good as they did in the 80s.  A few of my favorite tracks were not aired (such as “Sunshine in the Shade,” “A Letter to Both Sides” and “Are We Ourselves?”) but the prospect of hearing those classics live will keep me coming back to see The Fixx for as long as they keep touring.

    Thanks for posting a picture of the setlist. I asked the sound man to get me one after the show and he was in the process of untaping it from the monitor when a selfish woman shouted at him “That’s MY setlist! I was the first person in line!” I mentioned that there was another setlist on the drums but the sound man balked and said “I’m not touching it” and left both setlists where they were. He talked to another guy who went up on the stage and untaped the set list and gave it to the obnoxious woman after she repeated that she was first in line. I mentioned the drum setlist and he took that one and gave it to SOMEONE ELSE! Thanks to the obnoxious asshole, I got nothing. First in line? I fucking flew up from North Carolina for the show, you selfish little wench but I didn’t say it was automatically my setlist and demand it, I ASKED for it. I hope that selfish piece of shit reads this because she needs to learn some manners.
