The Go-Go's are still a band? I guess they are, because they've announced a farewell tour!

Shocking news today, as it seems The Go-Go’s have in fact, unbeknownst to most fans, been an active band for at least the last couple of years. Once it was firmly established that, as the band states, “we have been a ‘fully active band’ for the last couple of years,” a second round of shocking news was delivered wherein the band announced that they would be calling it quits after a 14-date farewell tour entitled “Happily Ever After.” I guess you just don’t know what you got until it’s gone.

The Go-Go’s have always been a vibrant band, entertaining fans for 30 years blah blah blah. They were great inspirations to women the world over and were the first all-female band to write their own material and end up on the top of the Billboard charts yadda-yadda-yoda-yadda. Listen, seriously, Beauty and the Beat is a fun, catchy album, but I bet you can’t even name their 2001 album. I bet you didn’t even know they had a 2001 album. I bet the most recent news story you heard about The Go-Go’s was that Belinda Carlisle was in Playboy, and that was in 2001. In fact, I bet the breakup doesn’t even surprise any member of the band. Except for the idiot who sang “Heaven Is a Place on Earth.” She was a moron.
