"After a 38-year run, we are gearing up for one last blast of a summer tour," the band told Entertainment Weekly. "We feel so lucky and so grateful to have had the incredible support of our fans for so long. We can't wait to get out on the road and give the people what they want: some loud, fast music and a great party!"
The Go-Go's biggest hits include "We Got the Beat," "Our Lips Are Sealed" and "Vacation."
Primary Wave Adds the Go-Go's to Management Roster
Guitarist and singer Jane Wiedlin posted to her blog in February that the farewell tour would be happening but gave no specifics. She wrote then, "It is with mixed feelings that we embark on our last adventure together. What an incredible ride we have had. I hope you will continue to follow all of us on our future endeavors."
The August shows will include most of the band's "classic" lineup with Belinda Carlisle, Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey and Gina Schock. Bassist Kathy Valentine -- who left the Go-Go's in 2013 over "irreconcilable differences" and later sued her former bandmates -- will not be joining.
