Men At Work frontman Colin Hay will perform a special concert on May 11 at Largo at the Coronet in Los Angeles in celebration of his new album, Gathering Mercury. The album is a portrait of Hay the performer, songwriter, recording artist, and perhaps most importantly the man behind the persona, with lyrics revealing the emotional peaks and valleys of the past year during which time Hay lost his father. A portion of the $30 concert ticket price will benefit MusiCares. To purchase tickets, click here.
