Totally '80s Hollywood Bowl returns for another end-of-summer spectacular, and this year's headliners are none other than the Go-Go's. LA's own pioneering all-female band was the first to top the charts while its members played their own instruments and wrote their own songs. They're joined by another LA band, the Motels, who had top-ten songs back in 1982 and 1983, along with two bands from England. The Psychedelic Furs brought us "Pretty in Pink," which only became a hit five years after it was recorded because of John Hughes' eponymous 1986 film with '80s darling, Molly Ringwald. Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren's tribal-inflected new wave band, Bow Wow Wow, is also part of the totally '80s-themed awesomeness at the Hollywood Bowl.

Hollywood Bowl says…

Our favorite twisted sweethearts return to the Bowl after 30 years! The Go-Go’s pioneered a genre and inspired a generation with such albums as their 1982 smash record Vacation. Released that same summer were The Psychedelic Furs’ classic “Love My Way,” The Motels’ brooding “Only the Lonely,” and Bow Wow Wow’s “I Want Candy.” Celebrate this amazing anniversary with the biggest end-of-summer party in L.A.
