ARTIST BIO

The Go-Go’s will forever have the beat. The multi-platinum, all-female American rock band was originally formed in 1978 and was the first all-female band to write their own songs and play their own instruments to top the Billboard charts. Their debut album, Beauty and the Beat was #1 on the charts and sold three million copies, making it one of the most successful debut albums of all time. It was also placed on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The Go-Go’s have sold over seven million albums throughout their career with top hit singles including, “We Got The Beat,” “Vacation,” and “Head Over Heels,” all of which live-on in countless compilations, movie soundtracks, remakes and, many television commercials. Three decades later, The Go-Go’s still know how to rock and today, their live show continues to deliver every bit of the raw energy of their now-legendary punk beginnings, tempered with the wisdom of years of pop perfection. This summer 2014, The Go-Go’s will return to the famous Hollywood Bowl, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary, to be inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, joining other luminaries such as Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, John Legend, Liza Minnelli and others. Additionally, this summer the iconic 80s rock band will also headline the ultimate 80s music experience, the Replay America tour, which kicks-off on July 5th in Clearwater, FL., and also features Patty Smyth of Scandal, Martha Davis and The Motels, Cutting Crew and Naked Eyes.
