Men At Work’s ‘Business As Usual’ album was one of the most successful Australian albums of all time spending 15 weeks at number one on the US chart and 5 weeks in the UK.
Men At Work only lasted for three albums and after releasing their first album in 1982 they were all over in 1985 but the momentum set singer Colin Hay up for a solo career for life.
Hay has released 11 albums since 1987’s solo debut ‘Looking For Jack’, he has been part of Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band and he has appeared in Scrubs and Blue Heelers.
Colin Hay’s solo shows are equal parts classics and comedy with never-ending anecdotes after his life and the songs the world got to know.
Colin Hay’s upcoming Australian tour dates are:
November 29, Darwin, Entertainment Centre
December 5, Brisbane, The Tivoli
December 6 and 7, Edge Hill, Tanks Art Centre
