Belinda Carlisle coming to Mesa Arts Center

Posted

1980s and ‘90s icon Belinda Carlisle will perform in November at Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, are available at MesaArtsCenter.com or by calling the box office during regular business hours at 480-644-6500.

In an everchanging landscape of shifting musical trends, few artists stand the test of time. Go-Go’s founder and lead vocalist Belinda Carlisle is one of those rare talents who continues to remain relevant after nearly four decades in the business, according to a release.

Amidst changing tastes, the gifted and glamorous singer-songwriter has indelibly touched the hearts of pop fans around the world with her unique blend of gutsy vocals, emotively charged melodies and picturesque lyrics, the release states.

“The Go-Go’s played a pivotal role in setting the tone of 1980s pop with their self-penned, multi-platinum debut album, Beauty and the Beat. Buoyed by Carlisle’s unmistakably emotive and edgy phrasing, the international top-10 singles ‘Our Lips Are Sealed’ and ‘We Got the Beat’ became enduring anthems for independent women from ages eight to 80 while redefining traditionally restrictive notions of so-called ‘girl groups,’” the release states.

In 1986, Carlisle released her first solo album Belinda and scored an out-of-the-box, gold-certified smash via the romantic slice of classic pop that is “Mad About You.” The unforgettable tune rocketed to No. 3 on the U.S. pop charts and its accompanying music video became a staple on MTV. Carlisle continued to crank out the hits with “Heaven is a place on Earth,” “I Get Weak,” “Circle in the Sand,” “Leave a Light On,” “La Luna,” “Summer Rain,” and countless more.
