(NEWTON, NJ) -- Colin Hay, front man of the hit band Men at Work, comes to the Newton Theatre on Friday, July 22, 2016 at 8:00pm. Best known for the 80s hits "Down Under," "Overkill," "Who Can It Be Now?" and the band's quirky videos, Hay's solo work over the past twenty years has found him quietly yet tenaciously re-introducing himself to new generations of fans. It has been an organic process, building momentum through constant touring, and film and television exposure.
"An aboriginal man once came backstage after a show and said to me in a kindly voice, "Where's your dance? I used to like your dance, you've lost your dance mate, you've gotta find your dance." So, I set out in search of it, looking here, there and everywhere in all corners of the globe. Quite soon I realized that "finding my dance" is an inner search, and that whilst I may never truly find it, it matters not. What's important is to keep searching, and in the process, refine and simplify the steps." Colin Hay
Themes of redemption and renewal come naturally to Colin Hay, as he is in the midst of a remarkable renaissance. Hay takes the audience on a musical journey, sometimes straight down the main road, and sometimes taking the twists and turns of the road less traveled. Whether or not you have seen him before, you will laugh, you may shed a tear, but you will most certainly be more than entertained.
Justifiably proud of his place in pop history, Hay is at the absolute peak of his craft. As a writer and vocalist, he has never been more masterful, as proven by the timeless appeal of his songs.
Tickets for Colin Hay range from $34 to $49. Purchase tickets by visiting www.thenewtontheatre.com or contact the Box Office at 973-383-3700.
