Holy cow, people. It’s been thirty years since Beauty and the Beat. I must now shed a tear into this coffee.
Anyway. The good news is EMI has taken the opportunity to remaster and expand the release. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
The Go-Go’s will hit the road this summer on their Ladies Gone Wild tour, a national U.S. trek with the legendary Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, Jane Wiedlin and Kathy Valentine. The tour will include a very special Los Angeles homecoming show at the Greek Theater on August 17, Belinda’s birthday. An exclusive VIP package will be available in most tour markets for fans to meet the band and purchase limited edition merchandise. In August, the Go-Go’s will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Last summer the Go-Go’s had scheduled a farewell tour which was subsequently canceled when guitarist Jane Wiedlin required surgery after suffering injury to her knees in a hiking fall. During the band’s time off, they decided they were not quite ready to hang up their instruments and set to work preparing for this summer’s 30th Anniversary spectacular, Ladies Gone Wild.
That second disc is seventeen tracks from a 1981 live show at The Metro in Boston, all previously unreleased. For info on their upcoming tour, check out their official site.
