Singer, Guitarist and frontman for Men at Work Colin Hay
Live at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall Sunday, January 31, 2016
Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (July 13, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall welcomes Colin Hay on Sunday, January 31, 2016. Tickets for Colin Hay will go on sale to the public this Friday, July 17, 2015.
Colin Hay is familiar to millions as the frontman, songwriter and vocalist of pop sensation Men at Work (“Down Under”, “Overkill”, “Who Can it Be Now?”). Hay is justifiably proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, he’s made 11 critically-acclaimed solo albums, including the highly successful Man at Work, and last February he released his latest album Next Year People on Compass Records. Colin recently performed with the Barenaked Ladies and Violent Femmes to a sold-out house at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Saturday, July 11.
Next Year People is the work of an artist who is a true master of his craft. The album is full of quizzical, curious and cynical yet open-hearted songs with catchy melodic hook that underscore deeply insightful lyrics. The album was produced by Hay and mixed by Chad Fischer (Chasing Mavericks, Ice Age 3, Lisa Loeb) and includes contributions from two young Cuban musicians, San Miguel Perez and Yosmel Montejo, both of whom recently emigrated from Havana, as well as Larry Goldings on piano, Jeff Babko (Jimmy Kimmel) on B3, and Colin’s wife, vocalist Cecilia Noel.
Over the past 15 years Hay has reinvented himself as a solo artist, regularly selling out theatres and listening rooms across the US and around the world and introducing himself to new generations of fans in the process. “I started off playing acoustic; it’s my natural game, if you will,” Hay concludes. “It’s the point I started from and may well be the point I end with. It’s always what I return to.”
The frequent use of Hay’s music in TV and film – including hit shows such as Scrubs (on which he has made several cameo appearances) Army Wives and Modern Family, the hit soundtrack to the film Garden State and the recently released Words and Pictures – has proven the timeless appeal of his songs.
Tickets for this seated show go on sale this Friday, July 17 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available for purchase at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre Box Offices, ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets and by phone at (800) 745-3000.
