Watch The Go-Go’s Play Two ’80s Classics On Kimmel

The Go-Go’s were one of the best bands to come out of the American wing of the ’80s new wave, and they’re about to embark on a huge farewell tour, with Best Coast opening. To promote that, rather than some new songs that nobody’s that excited to hear, they gave a rare all-killer/no-filler late-night performance last night on the Jimmy Kimmel Live outdoor festival stage. On the show proper, they played 1982’s “Vacation.” And as an online bonus, they did something even better: Their anthemic 1981 signature song “We Got The Beat.” Those two songs are obviously awesome, and they played them with verve and spirit. And am I being an asshole if I point out that the Go-Go’s looked awesome? Because they looked awesome. Watch both performances below.

You can find the dates for the farewell tour here, and I guess you’ll have to go to the show if you want to hear “Our Lips Are Sealed.”
