No vacation for the Go-Go's: Summer tour celebrates 30th anniversary

Remember when the Go-Go's retirement tour came and went? It just a year ago when the girls decided they were ready to call it quits and announced plans for one final tour. But then fate intervened and bassist Jane Wiedlin injured her knee, canceling their final tour.

We thought we'd missed a chance at a goodbye kiss. I'm happy to say this: Pucker up, because the Go-Go's are back in business and ready to celebrate their 30th anniversary with another summer of fun, dubbed the Ladies Gone Wild Tour. The roadtrip begins May 29 in a tiny hamlet in Pennsylvania and runs until Aug. 28 in Austin, Texas. Sadly, only one Florida city merits a stop: Orlando on June 11.

Also stay tuned for a new, deluxe version of their debut album, Beauty and the Beast, due May 17. And, according to Vintage Vinyl News, the group gets a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in August.
