    Who is excited about the Reach the Beach tour?

    Are you? Yeah. Me too.

    For those who don't know, who live under a rock or whatever, the Fixx will be performing the entire Reach the Beach album in celebration of its 35th anniversary this summer

    Luckily, I got my ticket. They sold very fast.

    I wonder if there will be encore songs, perhaps "Going Overboard"?

    I Am A Fan of 35 Years

    When I first saw The Fixx open the show for Supertramp. The Reach The Beach Album had just come out that year. After seeing The Fixx I was hooked into their music. I am hoping for a set list like this. I am hoping to see one of the 2 New Hope PA shows. I am very excited about this tour. I hope they do these Album Anniversary tours for the other albums they have in future tours.

    How Much is Enough?
    Driven Out

    One Thing Leads to Another
    The Sign of Fire
    Running
    Saved By Zero
    Opinions
    Reach The Beach
    Changing
    Liner
    Privilege
    Outside
    Going Overboard (I am hoping this song is included in the set) Dan Brown sounds great on this song as well as the band.

    Fatal Shore
    Deeper and Deeper
    Secret Separation

    That seems like a reasonable set list for this tour, although I suspect Stand or Fall would be on there, as well (perhaps in place of Fatal Shore).

    Unhappy No Atlanta. Bummer

    Very bummed that they aren't coming to Atlanta. There appears to be a coupe of days around the Nashville show, but I imagine they need a break. I have a gig to perform on the night they are in Nashville on Aug. 18. Everywhere else is an 8+ hour drive. Ugh. I so wish I could see this show in Atlanta. The last show here was great, but to see RTB in its entirety would be amazing. It was the first album I fell madly in love with. I even saw them tour with that album opening for The Police in Atlanta at The Omni. This would be ultimate nirvana. just...bummed....

    Setlist!!!

    Looks like a setlist has been posted, and it's a beauty:

    1. One Thing Leads to Another
    2. The Sign of Fire
    3. Running
    4. Saved by Zero
    5. Opinions
    6. Reach the Beach
    7. Changing
    8. Liner
    9. Privilege
    10. Outside
    11. Stand or Fall
    12. Less Cities, More Moving People
    13. Are We Ourselves?
    14. Chase the Fire
    15. Driven Out
    16. Something Ahead of You
    17. Shaman
    18. Deeper and Deeper
    19. Red Skies
    20. Built for the Future
    21. Secret Separation

    Very interesting that they open by banging out RTB, and they do not play How Much Is Enough. Otherwise, seems like a great setlist.
