The Go-Go 30th Anniversary Reissue

.
Capitol/I.R.S. have set a May 17 release date for 30th Anniversary Edition of The Go-Go's double platinum debut album, Beauty and the Beat, which has been digitally remastered and expanded for this special release.

The commemorative edition will be available in a 2CD package and in two digital collections featuring the remastered original album plus exclusive, previously unreleased concert audio recordings from 1981.

On the same date, the remastered original album will be reissued on pink vinyl with replicated original artwork.

Beauty and the Beat was the Go-Go's debut album, released in 1981 by I.R.S. Records. The album hit #1 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart, and was the first album to top the chart by an all-female band that wrote and performed its own songs. The album's singles, "Our Lips Are Sealed" and "We Got The Beat," also charted in several countries, fueling album sales of more than two million in the U.S. alone. Beauty and the Beat is considered one of the decade's defining albums and it is on Rolling Stone's list of the '500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.'

The Go-Go's will hit the road this summer on their Ladies Gone Wild tour, a national U.S. trek with the legendary Belinda Carlisle, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, Jane Wiedlin and Kathy Valentine. The tour will include a very special Los Angeles homecoming show at the Greek Theater on August 17, Belinda's birthday.

In August, the Go-Go's will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
