Our lips are unsealed: Go-Go's coming to Tropicana Field for Aug. 5 show
Eighties fans have a love-hate relationship with the Go-Go's. We love their catalog of never-aging hits, their bubbling moxy, their sexy stage presence. We hate it when they do crazy things, like announce plans to retire or cancel gigs because their cute bassist hurt her knee.
Get ready to love them all over again. The Go-Go's are coming to St. Petersburg's Tropicana Field to play a post Rays game show on Aug. 5. The Tampa Bay Rays are selling this as "Go-Go/Goo-Goo Weekend" because the Goo Goo Dolls are scheduled to perform Aug. 6. But we'll be too tired to attend that second game.
Consider this a MUST-SEE show in 2011, since Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Kathy Valentine and Gina Schock continue to float thoughts of calling it quits. I personally refuse to let it happen until I hear Our Lips are Sealed, We Got The Beat and Vacation in person.
As always, the concert is free so long as you paid to see the Rays. Who are they playing that day? I don't care. Just stay clear of Jane's bum knee!
