The Go-Go's have rolled out their rescheduled five-date West Coast run. Best Classic Bands reported in March, the recent Rock Hall inductees will hit Reno, Nevada along with California stops in san Francisco, Temecula, Anaheim, and San Diego. A hometown L.A. gig will also soon be announced.
The band will play a six-date UK arena tour in June opening for Billy Idol.
Guitarist Jane Wiedlin shed light on the magic component that's always made the Go-Go's stand apart from the pack: “I would say one thing about the Go-Go's songwriting is there's always two qualities going on at the same time. It's either, sort of, sunny music with dark lyrics or optimistic lyrics with slightly bitter sounding music. We always have those two things, and if one's missing it doesn't sound like the Go-Go's. So you notice it in more songs more than others but it's always been this weird little formula that we do naturally”
