"Rolling Stone" called The Moody Blues "the Sistine Chapel of popular music." Their hits “Nights in White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon” and “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band)” have become inspirational anthem which express universal themes of love, compassion and peace. 

The band opened their 1986 concert at the Coliseum with "Gemini Dream" before an audience of 4,500. The show was full of the band's most popular songs as well as tunes from their No. 1 album "Long Distance Voyager."  

In 1986, The Fixx released their fourth album "Walkabout," featuring "Secret Separation" (No. 1 on "Billboard" magazine's "Album Rock" chart) and "Built for the Future."  They closed their set with "Red Skies."
