Men At Work’s Colin Hay Set For Summer Tour


Men At Work leader Colin Hay has just rolled out a 21-date summer run in support of his upcoming covers collection, I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself, due out on August 6th.

Hay, who wrote all of Men At Work's greatest hits — including "Who Can It Be Now?," "Down Under," and "Overkill" — kicks off the jaunt on August 4th in Hyannis, Massachusetts at the Cape Cod Melody Tent and winds the trek down on September 11th in Redondo Beach, California at BeachLife Festival 2021.

I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself features Hay's interpretations of such classics as the Kinks' "Waterloo Sunset," Glen Campbell's "Wichita Lineman," the Beatles' "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)," Gerry & The Pacemakers' "Don’t Let The Sun Catch You Crying," the Faces' "Ooh La La," and Blind Faith's "Can’t Find My Way Home," among others.

Colin Hay, who still performs periodically under the Men At Work moniker, says that there is clearly a difference between his solo gigs and "group" concerts: ["We play between. . . between 1,000 and 10,000 people would come and see our show depending on where it is. So, it's still really quite good. So, that's quite big for me. That's a big tour. My solo tours are smaller, but it's a different kind of show. I tell a lot of stories usually, if I feel like it. I think the audience will like it, and sing songs. That's really my natural game. I'd been doing that since before I was in Men At Work."] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . Men At Work)
