The Go-Go’s Are Back

While I typically would drop everything and jump on a plane to see a reunion of The Go-Go’s, I had pressing business in California and couldn’t get away.  And so, while I may have been absent when the girls took to the stage of the Bowery Ballroom in New York City, ousted bassist Kathy Valentine was back where she belonged – onstage between Belinda Carlisle and Jane Wiedlin.  The classic lineup reunited for the official launch of the Broadway-bound musical, Head Over Heels, which is using the music of The Go-Go’s.  They rocked out to seven of their biggest hits (well, six of theirs, one of Belinda’s) and the capacity crowd ate it up.  The glitterati on hand included Sandra BernhardDebbie Harry, and Andy Cohen.  And then it was over…or was it?  Two nights later, they did a five-song set on the beach adjacent to the swanky Mandarin Oriental in Miami as part of the Broadway Across America conference – where producers promote their shows to theater owners around the country.  Kinda premature for a show that’s not even hitting Broadway until June, but it makes me happy.  You can see footage from the NY show on
