The Go-Go’s Announce ‘Farewell’ Summer Tour

Music News

The Go-Go’s have just announced a 17-date “Farewell” summer trek. The band, featuring co-founders Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, and Gina Schock, launch the tour on August 2nd in Clearwater, Florida at the Capitol Theatre and, as of now, wrap things up on August 30th with a homecoming gig at L.A.’s Greek Theatre. The group issued a statement talking about the tour, saying, “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 were originally supposed to call it quits after a planned 2010 jaunt that was postponed after guitarist Jane Wiedlin got injured. The Go-Go’s then reunited in 2014 for what was promised to be the band’s swan song — yet survived to play one more tour this summer.

Jane Wiedlin told us that she has amazing memories of her and lead singer Belinda Carlisle forming the band: “Belinda and I were part of the original Hollywood punk rock scene in the mid-’70s, and pretty much all of our friends had bands. Most of them were in more than one band and there was hardly anyone left that wasn’t in a band — except for some girls. It was kind of a natural thing. Like the girls came together and said, well, we could just do this, too.”
