Go-Go's on "GMA" This Morning; Playing Irving Plaza Tonight (Tix Still Available)

Those icons of 1980s girl-power rock/pop, Go-Go's, are back together and touring this summer, and they appeared on "Good Morning America" this morning. If you couldn't be in Central Park at 7 a.m. to watch (or be awake at that hour to watch on TV), you can see a replay of some of the songs above.

Better yet, you can see them live at Irving Plaza tonight, because Go-Go's tickets are still available as of this writing (maybe because tickets cost $80 with fees, etc. included, which could be steep for this still-sluggish economy).

The Go-Go's are celebrating the 30th anniversary of their "Beauty and the Beat" album, which featured such hits as "We Got the Beat" and "Our Lips are Sealed."

Billed as the "Ladies Gone Wild Tour," this is the rescheduled tour that was supposed to take place last summer but was scratched when Jane Wiedlin injured her knee while hiking and had to undergo surgery and a long recovery. Last year's tour was billed as the group's farewell, but this one isn't—a sign that the group may continue on?

They were asked about that on "Good Morning America" and Wiedlin says that this is the "we don't know what the heck we're doing tour," and Charlotte Caffey said the band was staying together "as far as we know."

You can find all the Go-Go's tour dates here. Other tri-state dates include Atlantic City tomorrow, Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut on Sunday, and Westbury Music Fair on Long Island on June 7th.
