After a 38-year run, we are gearing up for one last blast of a summer tour… We feel so lucky and so grateful to have had the incredible support of our fans for so long. We can’t wait to get out on the road and give the people what they want: some loud, fast music and a great party!

The Go-Go’s Biography
The Go-Go’s were founded in Los Angeles, CA in 1978 by guitarist Belinda Carlisle, guitarist Jane Wiedlin, bassist Margot Olavarria, and drummer Elissa Bello. The following year, The Go-Go’s recorded a five-track demo and began playing small gigs throughout the United States and England. In 1981, the Go-Go’s signed to I.R.S. Records and released their debut album, Beauty and the Beat. The album, which featured “We Got the Beat” was a hit, topping U.S. chart for six weeks. Eventually, the album received triple platinum certification.
The Go-Go’s next album, Vacation received mixed reviews from critics, but spawned the popular hit “Vacation.” In all, The Go-Go’s released four albums, most recently, God Bless The Go-Go’s in 2001.
