Special guests Kaya Stewart and Best Coast
–The multi-platinum rock group The Go-Go’s will embark on their farewell tour this summer making a stop at Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles on Aug. 23. The tour will feature members Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle, Gina Schock and Jane Wiedlin performing their catalog.
Singer-songwriter Kaya Stewart and rock duo Best Coast are lined up as opening acts on select dates.
The Go-Go’s made history as the first, and to date only, all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to ever top the Billboard charts. The Go-Go’s rose to fame during the early 1980s after the release of their debut album, Beauty and the Beat, which was #1 on the Billboard charts for six consecutive weeks, selling three million copies, and making it one of the most successful debut albums of all time. In 1982, The Go-Go’s were nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best New Artist” and the group also released their sophomore album, Vacation, that same year, which was certified gold in the US and spawned another top 10 US hit with the title track. In 2011, the band was honored with a star on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.
General tickets for the tour go on sale starting on Saturday, March 26 at 10 a.m. Details on VIP meet and greet packages are forthcoming.
Tickets available at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre box office during business hours, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at Ticketmaster.com or charge by phone at (800) 745-3000.
