Colin Hay performed as one of the special guests to perform on ABC’s Greatest Hits Live Finale: 1980-2005.
Colin Hay’s voice and visage are familiar to millions as front-man, songwriter, and vocalist of pop sensation Men at Work (“Down Under,” “Overkill,” “Who Can it Be Now?”). But over the past 15 years he has reinvented himself as a solo artist, regularly selling out theaters across the US and around the world, introducing himself to a new generation of fans in the process. The frequent use of his music in TV and film has proven the timeless appeal of his songs.
The live two-hour finale showcased the dynamic roster of artists responsible for creating the greatest hits in the music industry from the 80s, 90s and 2000s. Performers included Celine Dion, Ariana Grande, Sheryl Crow, John Legend and Nelly. Greatest Hits was broadcast LIVE from the Microsoft Theatre on THURSDAY, AUGUST 4 (9:00–11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.
You can watch Colin Hay performing “If I Had Been a Better Man” off his most recent Compass release, Next Year People, on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! that aired on July 21st, 2016. He also performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! MashUp Mondays with Icelandic rockers Of Monsters and Men.
Colin is currently in the studio working on a new album slated for a winter 2017 release.
