Go-Gos Play Los Angeles Club Show: Photos

The Go-Go’s delivered an intimate appearance at the famous Whiskey a Go Go on Tuesday evening (December 14th).

The concert marked the band’s first appearance since being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in October.

The group – consisting of Belinda Carlisle (lead vocals), Charlotte Caffey (lead guitar, keyboards and vocals), Kathy Valentine (bass and vocals) and Jane Wiedlin (guitar and vocals), with Blondie’s Clem Burke as drummer – rocked a 20 song -Set with some of their most popular tracks.

The band opened with “Beatnik Beach” followed by “This Town” before delivering their 1982 hit “Vacation”.

Other highlights were the classic tracks “Our Lips Are Sealed” and “We Got the Beat”, which were performed one after the other to complete the first movement. The band then came out for a two-song encore, playing “Fun With Ropes” and “Can’t Stop the World”.

The concert was a homecoming for the go-gos who formed in Los Angeles in 1978 and eventually became one of the most popular acts of the 80s. In 2016 the band embarked on a farewell tour that culminated with a performance at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. The group returned to the City of Angels two years later and played three shows at the Hollywood Bowl as part of their brief 40-year anniversary tour.

The Whiskey a Go Go Show was part of the SiriusXM and Pandora Small Stage Series, with the competition winners making up the majority of those in attendance. The radio and television personality Richard Blade, a mainstay of SiriusXM’s 1st Wave channel since 2005, introduced the band.
