The Go-Gos returned to the Pacific Amphitheatre at the OC Fair for the 2nd time in a row. Their last show there was July,2013. A month prior to Friday’s show, the Go-Go’s performed at the Hollywood Bowl for opening night and were inducted into their hall of fame. The Go-Go’s had many successes including being the most successful female group, being the first female band to write and play their instruments, sold over 7 million albums, and each member had successful solo careers, as well as having one of the biggest selling debut albums of all time. After 36 years and few break ups and reunions founding members Belinda Carlisle (Lead Vocals), Jane Wiedlin (Rhythm Guitar), Charlotte Caffey (Lead Guitar, Keyboard), and Gina Schock (Drums) still remain in the group.
The Go-Go’s were announced then came running out and started playing one of their biggest hits “Vacation.” With it being summer time what better way to open the show. Their set included classic hits as well as a solo hit from Belinda Carlisle “Mad About You,” and a Jane Wiedlin song “Cool Places.” On “Cool Jerk,” audience members from the front were brought on stage to dance along with the Go-Go’s. The audience sang along with nearly every song whether you’re a guy a girl, who doesn’t love the Go-Go’s? There were girls at the show in their teens dressed like they were in the 80’s even. It was nice to see fans of all ages. The Go-Go’s played a 14 song set with a three song encore. One word to describe a Go-Go’s show is “fun.” How could you not want to dance and jump around to every song? Before the encore, the Go-Go’s played two fan favorites “Our Lips Are Sealed,” and “We Got The Beat.” The band led the audience with clapping along on “Our Lips Are Sealed.” The encore was “Get Up And Go,” Jonny Are You Queer?” and “Head Over Heals.” The Go-Go’s rocked every song.
