The Bangles were one of the most popular female fronted bands of the 1980’s. Their hit songs include “Walk Like An Egyptian”, “Manic Monday”, “Eternal Flame” , “Hazy Shade of Winter”(Simon & Grafunkel song) and “In Your Room”. The band’s current lineup includes original members Susanna Hoffs(vocals and guitar), Vicki Peterson (vocals and guitar) and Debbi Peterson (drums).
Tickets for the concert go on sale this Friday at Noon via ticketmaster locations, the TLA box office as well as livenation.com.

Tickets can be purchased for $22 in advance or for $25 at the TLA the evening of the show.
The Bangles are touring around the release of their first album in 7 years, SWEETHEART OF THE SUN which will be released on September 27. The album was recorded
by Matthew Sweet (Susanna’s frequent collaborator) at his home studio in the Hollywood Hills, with much of the overdubbing done at the home studios of Vicki and Susanna, and mixed by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Wilco), SWEETHEART OF THE SUN reveals The Bangles at their equally beguiling extremes, as soaring folk-rock harmonies coexist with adrenalized rave-ups inspired by the band’s roots in Nuggets-era garage rock.
