The Moody Blues and The Fixx: 9/29/1986

Here is a great example of why it was cool to be around in the 70s and 80s. You could go and see two cool bands for a mere $16.50. I’ve spent three times that much just for parking at concerts these days.

Anyway, I had seen the Moody’s the night before in Miami, but I figured, “Why not go see them again?” Supposedly The Fixx opened at the Miami show too, but I don’t really have any recollection of that concert. This one I remember better. I went with my friend Carlos and we had a great time. While the West Palm Beach Auditorium was not nearly as intimate as the Knight Center in Miami, it was cool because you could walk around and pretty much do what you wanted. It was a very laid-back venue.

Nothing really extraordinary to share about this show. I was able to locate the setlists online, so here they are. Enjoy!

    • Hey Deke. Yeah, the Fixx had a few hits, but they fizzled. Saw them open for The Police also a few years before this, which was cool. As far as “Ride My See-Saw,” classic psychedelic tune. The lyrics pretty much describe a mind-expanding experience:

      Ride, ride my see-saw,
      Take this place
      On this trip
      Just for me.

      Anyway, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Always great to discuss music with you. BTW – just finished writing my next installment on the Crowley series. Will likely post that one tomorrow on the other blog.

      Cheers!
