Men at Work

Australian rock band Men at Work, best known for breakthrough hits such as "Down Under," "Who Can It Be Now?" "Be Good Johnny," "Overkill," and "It's a Mistake," comes to the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach on Wednesday, October 23 at 7:30 PM.  

Men at Work was born in Melbourne, Australia in the middle of 1979. The band went on to become a globally successful Grammy-winning, multi-platinum-selling act, during the early 80’s. The original band came apart relatively quickly, however, and disintegrated by 1985.

Founding member and frontman Colin Hay and instrumentalist Greg Ham responded to demand and toured many parts of the world as Men at Work from 1996 into the 2000s. Sadly, Greg Ham passed away in 2012.

Founding member Colin Hay has developed a solo career over the last 35 years, writing, recording, and touring extensively throughout the world as a solo artist. He is presently part of Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band. Since 2019, he has also toured and played under the Men at Work banner with his LA-based group of musicians, where he plays an exclusively Men at Work set, including all the hits and dearly loved songs that have clearly stood the test of time.
