The Go-Go's AREN'T Calling It Quits, New Music May Be Coming Soon!

Thank goodness! We're so glad that they're not going to good-bye for good!

Although The Go-Go's planned to reunite last year for a farewell tour, guitarist Jane Wiedlin forced them to put the shows on hold after she injured her knee hiking.

Thankfully, this postponement caused the ladies to rethink calling it quits for good, and now, in lieu of a farewell tour, they'll be traveling this summer to promote the re-release of Beauty and the Beat, their debut album made 30 years ago - and we may even be getting new tunes from them!

Jane explains:

"We've talked about it for years. It's one of those ongoing conversations. I was thinking about how few records we actually have made in our 33 years and how we could be doing a lot better. Because the Go-Go's isn't a full-time band anymore and the fact we've scattered over the whole world, it makes it really hard to commit to things like making records. But having said that, now that the interwebs are so big and people release one song at a time… the structure of making music has become less rigid. So I'd like to think that, yes, we will have new music coming. Over the course of a year everyone just started re-thinking that idea [the Farewell tour] and ultimately we decided we shouldn't say it's a farewell tour this year. I was not happy about it, anyway; I want to be a 90-year-old Go-Go someday. I love being a Go-Go. It definitely has its ups and downs, and we have a very intense energy with each other. Sometimes it's amazing fun, and it's always magical when we play live together. And sometimes we are just such a pain in the ass to each other, like, we all get on each other's nerves because we've all known each other for so long. Basically it's a five-way marriage that's gone on for 33 years — and will keep going if I have anything to say about it."

Phew! We feel like we dodged a bullet!

We would have been so sad if they were done!

You guys have the right attitude - we'd LOVE to hear some new music, even if it's just a new single!

Take advantage of the fluidity of the music industry right now! It's about time we had some Go-Go's back in our life!

What do U think?? Do U want the Go-Go's to stick around?

The Go-Go's Cancel Their Farewell Tour

So sad. We were looking forward to this, too!

The Go-Go's have cancelled their summer tour after Jane Wiedlin tore her ACL!

They released this note:

It is with great regret that the Go-Go’s announce today the cancellation of Happily Ever After, their summer farewell tour. The tour was scheduled to kick off July 7 at Lilith Fair San Diego, and conclude in Austin, TX on July 27. The band will also be unable to perform live on Good Morning America, scheduled for July 16 in New York’s Central Park.

The news comes as a result of guitarist Jane Wiedlin injuring herself after a 20-foot fall while hiking near her home in Northern California a couple of weeks ago. Jane is scheduled for ACL replacement surgery for her knee in the coming weeks, with a prognosis of up to a year recovery time.

The band is heartbroken and hopes their fans will send best wishes for Jane’s speedy recovery. In the meantime, tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.

Poor thing! Such an unfortunate set of circumstances!

We sincerely hope Jane recovers - keep your chin up, bb! We wish you only the best!
