Colin Hay

A celebrated singer-songwriter, Colin Hay has influenced a wide range of musicians from Metallica to The Lumineers. However, you might know him best as frontman for Men at Work. His solo shows are more intimate and confessional but no less impactful as his music spans themes of love and loss, mortality and even the odd UFO sighting. However, no matter the topic, Hay delivers with singular perspective and insightful wit. From $45.
