Bye-Bye, Go-Gos


After 30 years together and a slew of chart-topping songs that defined an
era, the Go-Go’s announce Happily Ever After – The Farewell Tour. Happily
Ever After kicks off July 7, 2010 at Lilith Fair in San Diego, wraps up
July 27 in Austin, and will include a live television performance on Good
Morning America, July 16 in New York City.

In 1981, the Go-Go’s delivered Beauty And The Beat hot on the heels of
their debut U.S. single “Our Lips Are Sealed.” The album garnered
double-platinum status, reaching number one and becoming the first to top
the Billboard charts by an all-female band that wrote and performed their
own songs. 1982’s Vacation and 1984’s Talk Show continued their chart and
radio successes and cemented the Go-Go’s as one of the most iconic and
beloved groups of the 80s. The Go-Go’s released a much-celebrated
anthology, Return to the Valley of The Go-Go’s in 1994, and 2001 marked
the last studio album of new material, God Bless The Go-Go’s

Their story truly is a punk version of the American Dream. They came, they
saw and they conquered the charts and airwaves with their kicky kitsch and
sparkling California appeal. Their smash hits, such as “We Got the Beat,”
“Vacation,” “Head Over Heels,” and the aforementioned “Our Lips Are
Sealed,” along with countless magazine covers, television performances,
and high-profile concert tours, turned Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin,
Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock and Kathy Valentine into certified rock
stars, and five feisty role models for generations of ready-to-rock girls.
From their halcyon days as America’s sweethearts to their current status
as superstars who pioneered a genre, the Go-Go’s preside over an amazing
three-decade reign as high priestesses of pop.

Today, with the original lineup intact, the Go-Go’s live show continues to
deliver every bit of the raw energy of their now-legendary punk
beginnings, tempered with the wisdom of three decades of pop perfection.
Don’t miss them on this farewell tour as they celebrate with, and say
goodbye to, their devoted fans, before the Go-Go’s head into the happily
ever after.
