Featuring the hits "Our Lips Are Sealed" (named one of Rolling Stone's Top 100 Pop Singles) and "We Got The Beat," the album stayed at No. 1 for six consecutive weeks and also earned them a Grammy nomination for "Best New Artist."

Now, The Go-Go's--Charlotte Caffey (lead guitar, keyboards and vocals), Belinda Carlisle (lead vocals), Gina Schock (drums), Kathy Valentine (bass and vocals) and Jane Wiedlin (guitar and vocals), come full circle with this special performance, as they take the stage at a significant venue in the band's early history, for SiriusXM and Pandora listeners. The Go-Go's will deliver a spirited and memorable performance featuring their biggest hits and new music.  The Go-Go's exclusive Small Stage Series performance in Los Angeles will air on Friday, December 17 at 5:00 pm ET via satellite on 1st Wave (ch. 33). Additionally, Andy Cohen's Kiki Lounge will also air the concert on Friday, December 17 at 6:00 pm ET on the SXM App (ch. 312). Both channels will rebroadcast the full performance throughout the weekend.

Old Dominion:  Fresh off their fourth consecutive CMA win for 'Vocal Group of the Year,' the band will perform beloved top hits and music from their new album, Time, Tequila and Therapy, released last month, in an intimate setting at one of L.A'.s most iconic venues, The Troubadour on Wednesday, December 15.  As the original radio champion of Old Dominion, SiriusXM's the Highway proclaimed the band a 'Highway Find' in 2014 and was first to play their earliest tracks on air.  Since then, the band has notched eight No. 1 singles at country radio, surpassed one billion on-demand streams, earned several Platinum and Gold single certifications and headlined arenas and amphitheaters around the globe. The reigning CMA and ACM "Group of The Year" received their first two GRAMMY nominations for "Best Country Duo/Group Performance" and "Best Country Song," for hit single "Some People Do" in 2020, and recently notched a nomination "Favorite Duo/Group - Country" for the 2021 American Music Awards. With their rollicking live shows and supreme songcraft they've quickly established themselves as one of country music's most beloved acts.  Old Dominion's exclusive Small Stage Series performance will air live on SiriusXM's The Highway via satellite (ch. 56) on Wednesday, December 15 at 8:00 pm PT.
