Trixxi Powers is every guy’s dream musician: blonde, sexy, and amazing on the keyboard. Life seems complete as she kicks off her tour with her successful band, FunkTime, knowing her loving boyfriend, Steve, is supporting her shot at fame. Until technical problems dog her performance in their first few shows and the lead musician, Mel Masters, expects her to sort their problems out with their sound engineer, Robbie.
It should be straightforward, except Robbie is more interested in getting into Trixxi’s pants than helping with the sound problems. Pressure mounts as their next show approaches. This is not just her big moment to shine, but the band’s as well: their show will be on one of the most hallowed stages in Britain, the famous Brighton Dome theatre. If Trixxi’s technical glitches continue, it won’t just be the end of her career but the end of the band itself.
Will she compromise her faithfulness to her boyfriend? Is the guilt of a secret affair worth saving the fate of FunkTime and what might be their one and only shot at fame? Trixxi’s time is running out and this is the moment where her relationship with Steve will reach a true crossroads, a moment that will either bring them closer together or tear them forever apart.
What Goes on Tour is a 8,300-word short story.
