Colin Hay coming to the Coach House

Although Colin Hay is best known as the frontman and principal songwriter of '80s Australian rock outfit Men at Work, he has found a large and loyal audience via a long series of solo releases.
Now, Nashville-based Compass Records has reissued one of the strongest albums of his career, 1998's "Transcendental Highway," which included the hit "I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You," featured on the soundtrack of the movie "Garden State."
The album, produced by Dan Rothchild, finds Hay's distinctive and emotive voice tackling everything from the Internet frontier of the mid-1990s ("Transcendental Highway") and loss ("If I Go," "Goodbye My Red Rose") to his own roller-coaster music career ("My Brilliant Feat").
Hay will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 23, 2009 at The Coach House, 33157 Camino Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano. In addition to selections from "Transcendental Highway," he'll likely perform material from his most recent album, 2007's "Are You Lookin' At Me?" and Men at Work hits such as "Who Can It Be Now?" and "Down Under."
Appearing on the bill with Hay will be Marcus Eaton and Saint John and the Revelations. Information: 949-496-8930.
