The Go-Go’s got the beat for a “Small Stage Series” show
Don’t miss an upcoming Small Stage Series show that’s all you ever wanted when The Go-Go’s take the stage at L.A.’s Whiskey a Go Go on Tuesday, December 14th. This concert — along with shows from Ed Sheeran and Old Dominion — will close out the 2021 Small Stage Series season, featuring performances with premier artists spanning music genres and styles, and comedy, held in small iconic venues.
The Go-Go’s exclusive Small Stage Series performance will air on Friday, December 17th at 5 pm ET via satellite on 1st Wave (Ch. 33) and at 6 pm ET the same day on the SXM App via Andy Cohen’s Kiki Lounge (Ch. 312). Both channels will rebroadcast the full performance throughout the weekend.
These shows follow 16 live exclusive performances that SiriusXM and Pandora’s Small Stage Series has presented as concerts and events have come alive again. The series launched on August 19 with Dave Matthews from Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, NY, and Kane Brown from his tour rehearsal space in Nashville.
These performances were followed by an array of exclusive shows from music’s biggest and buzziest artists on stage in various cities across the country. The multi-genre-spanning lineup included Alicia Keys, Brandi Carlile, Coldplay, Dave Matthews, Glass Animals, H.E.R., J Balvin, J. Cole, Jason Aldean, Kane Brown, Kenny Chesney, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Shaggy and Twenty One Pilots.
2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Go-Go’s will bring their live show back to a stage where it all began at L.A.’s Whiskey a Go Go. Rooted in music history as groundbreakers and pop phenomenon, the group was born out of the L.A. punk scene and became the first all-female band writing their own material and playing their own instruments to top the U.S. Billboard album chart with their multi-platinum debut, Beauty and the Beat.
Featuring the hits “Our Lips Are Sealed” (named one of Rolling Stone‘s Top 100 Pop Singles) and “We Got The Beat,” the album stayed at No. 1 for six consecutive weeks and also earned them a GRAMMY Award nomination for Best New Artist. Their 1982 follow up, Vacation, hit Top 10 on the Billboard 200 and featured the Top 10 title track “Vacation.”
Now, The Go-Go’s — Charlotte Caffey (lead guitar, keyboards and vocals), Belinda Carlisle (lead vocals), Gina Schock (drums), Kathy Valentine (bass and vocals) and Jane Wiedlin (guitar and vocals) — come full circle with this special performance as they take the stage at a significant venue in the band’s early history. The band will deliver a spirited and memorable performance featuring their biggest hits and new music.
