Colin Hay at Wealthy Theatre (click for more info)
Lemon Creek Winery, WYCE and Wealthy Theatre present Colin Hay - Grammy-winning singer/songwriter from Men At Work - in concert Friday, May 18th! Colin Hay is best known as the lead singer for the platinum selling Australian band that topped worldwide charts in the 80s with anthems like “Down Under,” “Overkill,” and “Who Can It Be?” Colin Hay is justifiably proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, he’s made 11 solo albums; he's confident that his latest, Gathering Mercury, is his best yet.
