Concerts Welcomes The Go-Go’s Former Lead Singer April 5 at 8PM
(November 3, 2015) – Cathedral
Concerts, recognized by the Cleveland Plain Dealer as “one of the
most unusual (and diverse) endeavors to hit the city in some time,” is
presenting Belinda Carlisle – former
lead singer of The Go-Go’s at the gorgeous Trinity Cathedral on Tuesday, April 5 at 8:00 p.m.
Ms. Carlisle has had a wildly successful career dating back to The
Go-Go’s debut album release in 1981. Beauty and the Beat, featuring the hits
“We Got The Beat” and “Our Lips Are Sealed,” is considered one of the
cornerstone albums of the “new wave” era.
The album broke The Go-Go’s wide and far and was responsible for paving
the way for a host of other new American acts in the genre. The album went to #1 in the USA and marked
the first time an all-female band who wrote their own music and played their
own instruments achieved a No. 1 album.
After leaving The Go-Go’s, Carlisle went on to an equally
successful solo career that still thrives today. “Heaven Is a Place on Earth” went to #1, “I
Get Weak,” #2 and “Mad About You,” #3.
All three songs remain staples on US radio today and make Belinda
Carlisle one of the most important and lasting female artists of the modern
“I can’t wait
for this concert,” stated Steve Lindecke, Elevation Group managing partner and
Cathedral Concerts’ executive producer.
“Howard Jones was such a fun and uplifting experience when we hosted him
last March. It was great to see how into
it the crowd was. The music of the 80s
was big for a reason and we expect a similar vibe for Belinda Carlisle.”
“We are very
excited to host Belinda Carlisle. The diversity of musicians brought to Trinity
through the Cathedral Concerts is exposing new audiences to our beautiful
church and spreading our message of ‘all are welcome’,” says the Very Rev.
Tracey Lind, Dean of Trinity Cathedral. "We look forward to Belinda
sharing her hit songs in our sacred space."
