HOMER, N.Y. — Pop sensation Colin Hay from the band Men at Work will be performing a solo show at Center for the Arts on Friday, January 20, at 8pm. Doors open at 7pm.

Colin Hay is familiar to millions as the frontman, songwriter, and vocalist of Men at Work (“Down Under,” “Overkill,” “Who Can it Be Now?”). Hay is justifiably proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, he’s made 11 critically-acclaimed solo albums, including the highly successful Man at Work.

Over the past 15 years Hay has reinvented himself as a solo artist, regularly selling out theaters and listening rooms across the US and around the world and introducing himself to a new generation of fans in the process.

“I started off playing acoustic; it’s my natural game, if you will,” he concludes. “It’s the point I started from and may well be the point I end with. It’s always what I return to,” says Hay.

The frequent use of Hay’s music in TV and film—including hit shows such as Scrubs (on which he has made several cameo appearances), Army Wives, and Modern Family, the hit soundtrack to the film Garden State and the recently released Words and Pictures—has proven the timeless appeal of his songs.

Ticket prices range from $35-$40. Military/Veterans with ID and children under 18 receive free admission. Call 877-749-2787 or visit for tickets and info.
