RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The Go Go’s are stopping in Ridgefield on their final tour for a night of greatest hits, including “We Got The Beat,” “Vacation,” and “Our Lips Are Sealed."

In 1982, The Go-Go’s were nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best New Artist” and the group also released their sophomore album, Vacation, that same year, which was certified Gold in the and spawned another top-10 hit with the title track. In 2011, the band was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Starting off the night is Kaya Stewart. The 15-year-old has an upcoming debut album for Warner Bros. Records. There will also be a set by Best Coast including their new album California Nights.
