One of my 1980s fan boy dreams came true last week when I got the chance to see The Fixx live in concert. If you’re only aware of their monster hits such as “Red Skies,” “Saved by Zero” or “One Thing Leads to Another,” I encourage you to check out their deep cuts as well as their more recent material such as 2012’s “Beautiful Friction,” which features the classic line up of The Fixx.

The Fixx were super cool when I met them and I of course couldn’t help gushing to each of them how happy I was to finally get to see them in concert.

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.
