Watch the Go-Go’s Play Two Songs on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

This Tuesday (Aug. 2), the Go-Go‘s will embark on what they’re calling their farewell tour. Earlier this week, they helped promote the dates by performing their two biggest hits on Jimmy Kimmel Live! You can see “We Got the Beat” above and “Vacation” below.

“We Got the Beat” appeared on their 1981 debut, Beauty and the Beat, and was their second single. It reached No. 2 on the Hot 100, while the album made history by becoming the first record with songs written and performed entirely by women to top Billboard‘s album chart. “Vacation,” the title track to their 1982 follow-up, peaked at No. 8 on the Hot 100. The group has had two other Top 20 singles, their initial single, “Our Lips Are Sealed,” which only got as high as No. 20, and “Head Over Heels,” which just missed the Top 10, stalling at No. 11 in 1984.

The Go-Go’s begin their tour on Aug. 2 in Clearwater, Fla., and will wrap it up after a career that spanned 38 years — with several stops and starts in between — on Aug. 30 at the Greek Theatre in their hometown of Los Angeles. Best Coast will be supporting them on most nights. You can see all the dates below and get complete ticket information at the band’s website.
