Colin Hay Plays Las Vegas Monte Carlo Tonight

I met Colin Hay in 1982 ('83?) at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. He was hanging out in the lobby before a Dexy's Midnight Runners performance. It was strange. He asked me where I lived. I asked him what he was doing here??!! I called a couple of my friends over to say hello and that was it. Just seemed like the funniest thing. It was the same time that Men at Work were going super big, and here's Hay just hanging out for a couple of drinks with the L.A. locals.

In any case,
he's playing tonight at the Brew Pub at Vegas' Monte Carlo. Sounds fun. Turns out he's toured with Ringo Star's All Star Band, so what in the heck? (And I'm reminded of how enjoyable the flute is sometimes.) ...
