We FINALLY got the beat: Go-Go's coming to St. Pete's Mahaffey on Sept. 19

go-gos.jpgThe Go-Go's are one of those great '80s acts that just don't get around as much as their fans would like. And can you blame them? Though the band is still touring with their classic lineup -- Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock and Kathy Valentine -- the girls themselves are scattered all around the globe when they're not on the road. So every live show generates a ton of frequent flyer miles.

So the very least you can is step up and buy a ticket when the Go-Go's play Sept. 19 at St. Petersburg's Mahaffey Theater. It's one of only three shows they have planned for September (the other two are in California), plus it's at a nice, comfy indoor venue. The Go-Go's were one of the free concerts last summer for the Tampa Bay Rays, but I sadly missed it.

So, assuming everything goes according to plan, this upcoming show will be the FIRST EVAH! Go-Go's concert for me, thus striking another name off the bucket list.

Tickets are $35, $55 and $60 and go on sale Saturday, June 30 at noon. Tickets are subject to additional convenience fees and handling charges. Tickets may be purchased online at, or charge by phone at (727) 893-7832. Tickets may also be purchased at the Mahaffey Theater Box Office.
