The Go-Go’s announce intimate North American tour

Trek is in celebration of Showtime documentary The Go-Go’s

The multi-platinum Los Angeles rock band The Go-Go’s have announced 11 North American summer dates in conjunction with the release of The Go-Go’s, a new Showtime documentary directed by Allison Wood which chronicles the meteoric rise to fame of a band born of the L.A. punk scene.

Kicking off on June 25th at Humphreys in San Diego, CA, and performing at intimate venues across North America gives fans a chance to see the band up close and personal. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 24th at 10 am local time with the Los Angeles dates going on sale next Friday, January 31st at 10 am PT.

As the first multi-platinum-selling, all-female band to play their own instruments, write their own songs and soar to No. 1 on the album charts, The Go-Go’s are the most successful female rock band of all time.

Rooted in the early L.A. punk scene, Charlotte Caffey (lead guitar, keyboards, vocals), Belinda Carlisle (lead vocals), Gina Schock (drums, percussion, vocals), Kathy Valentine (bass guitar, vocals) and Jane Wiedlin (guitar, vocals) didn’t PLAY the part of bad girls; they were genuine punk rockers.

With full access to The Go-Go’s, both past and present, the candid archive-rich documentary The Go-Go’s assesses the group’s place in music history and examines the personalities and dynamics behind their rise, fall and numerous reincarnations. Until this definitive film, there has never been a serious appraisal of and showcase for The Go-Go’s’ talents or achievements – as musicians, groundbreakers, but even more so, as survivors.
