Newstalgia Backstage Weekend - Men At Work In Concert - 1983

Newstalgia Backstage Weekend with Men At Work, recorded live in concert, 1983.

<strong>Men At Work - A staple in the diet of anyone who spent the 80's watching MTV for more than 30 seconds.</strong>


This might be a great excuse to dive head first into an 80's thing next week. Men At Work were an Australian band who became a staple in the diet of the first wave of MTV addicts. They were an instantly likable band with a file cabinet full of catchy tunes. Lead singer Colin Hay did embark on a solo career after the initial split up of the band in the late 1980's. There was a brief reunion and as of this moment they don't appear to be continuing. Colin Hay is still pursuing a solo career while currently working with Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band. In any event, here is a record of what they sounded like live in the early 1980's. Recorded sometime late in 1982 or early 1983 and with no indication of venue, but still to a very appreciative crowd, here are Men At Work live in concert.
