AMP Concerts presents Colin Hay. Hay first came to prominence as the lead vocalist of Men at Work, which was formed in 1979 and went on to become a multi-platinum-selling musical act, winning a Grammy for best new artist in 1982. The original band was short-lived, however, and after 1985 Hay became primarily a solo artist. He has written and released some 13 solo albums, the latest being I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself, an album of cover material. With a new album of original material due for release in early 2022, Hay is also a touring member of Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band, scheduled to resume touring in 2022.
