Keeping their promise to reschedule west coast concert dates postponed last winter due to COVID issues, the most successful all-female band of all-time, the Go-Go’s, have announced new tour dates for March 2022. This tour will finally allow the five fierce and feisty power pop punkers from L.A. to take a well-deserved victory lap celebrating their recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The tour starts March 24th in San Francisco, followed by dates in Reno, Temecula, Anaheim, and San Diego. There will also be a special hometown Los Angeles show announced soon. With what almost seems like a rarity for many touring bands these days, The Go-Go’s have their complete classic lineup; Belinda Carlisle (lead vocals), Jane Wiedlin (guitar, vocals), Charlotte Caffey (lead guitar, keys, vocals), Gina Schock (drums, vocals), and Kathy Valentine (bass guitar, vocals).

It was 40 years ago that The Go-Go’s emerged from the gritty L.A. punk scene and released their landmark album “Beauty and the Beat.” With mega hits “Our Lips Are Sealed” and “We Got the Beat,” the double platinum album propelled the band to become the first and only all-female group who wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to achieve a number one album on the Billboard charts.
Their follow-up album, “Vacation,” went certified gold and the title track hit number eight on the charts.
Now the sassy girl band pioneers can add Rock and Roll Hall of Famers as a crowning achievement. If you haven’t seen Drew Barrymore’s endearing and inspiring HOF induction speech for the band, you have to check it out. “’Beauty and the Beat’ blew the doors of my life off,” Barrymore proclaimed. “It opened me up to a whole new dimension. I dropped the needle and I felt instantly connected to the punk pulse of this record. It sounded like pure possibility. It rattled up my walls and straight through to my heart. I spent hours staring at that cover and the back side, all of them in the bathtub. The coolest girls in the world taking a spa day in cool-girl heaven. It was always a party for guys for so long, but these girls they were crashing it!”
