The Go-Go's - Live In Japan '82 - CD (Released 20/08/21)
Christened by the press as America's Sweethearts, the Go-Go's had a meteoric climb in the early 1980s. With a string of self-penned hits and a huge fan following worldwide, the Go-Go's were practically a household name, and certainly were one of the first breakthrough bands to take big advantage of MTV. Their appearance in Tokyo on their 1982 tour in support of the previous year's Beauty And The Beat and follow-up Vacation captures them at the peak of their popularity, playing to a sold-out venue and a screaming crowd. Most of the material performed is from their debut album which they'd also been carrying around on tour with UK new wave band The Police. A contemporary telling of Elvis Presley's Let's Have A Party raises the temperature in a dynamic show that's delivered with all the lipstick, glamour and passion of LA's finest.
TimeLine proudly presents the original broadcast of The Go-Go's, live from the Sun Plaza Hotel, Tokyo on 19th June 1982. Presented here with background liners and timeline photos.
