The Go-Go's Come Out of Retirement for New Tour Dates and Documentary

Belinda Carlisle and company are back

January 23, 2020

The Go-Go’s are bringing the beat back.

Following a brief hiatus, the pioneering band has announced an 11-date summer tour. It kicks off June 25th in San Diego and runs through July 13th in Costa Mesa, CA.

Belinda Carlisle, Jane Weidlin, Charlotte Caffey, Kathy Valentine and Gina Schock last performed together in 2018, but have a good excuse to bring the band back to life. Their new documentary is set to premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

“The Go-Go’s” dives deep into the “personalities and dynamics behind their rise, fall and numerous reincarnations.” Director Alison Ellwood was given full access to the band behind hits like “We Got the Beat,” “Head Over Heels” and “Our Lips Are Sealed.”

“I’ve always been a huge Go-Go’s fan,” Ellwood said. “When the band asked me to direct this film, I was thrilled. Like a lot of people, I thought of them as this wonderful, bubbly, all-girl pop band from LA. What I’ve discovered is a much more complex and deeper truth.”

“We lived it and we survived it,” The Go-Go’s said. “Now, looking back on our history through this film, we get to relive our journey as a band:  the fun, the adventure, the highs and the lows. We hope this documentary will show the world that we were pioneers, and how our experience paved the way for many other female (and some male!) musicians.”

The documentary will air on Showtime, but no release date has been announced.
