Former "Men At Work" Frontman Colin Hay To Perform March 13

Colin Hay – the Men At Work frontman-turned-successful-solo-artist – performs classic Men At Work hits as well as his recent music at The Clayton Center on Sunday, March 13.

Throughout his career, the Australian singer/songwriter has performed in every possible situation, from packed arenas and enormous outdoor festivals with a full band to intimate shows with just his guitar. Hay’s solo performances intersperse the classics — “Down Under,” “Overkill” and “Who Can It Be Now?”— with new songs from his more recent releases.

Hay’s 2009 CD American Sunshine (Compass Records) marks a new chapter in his storied career. His songwriting is honed by discipline and experience and his unmistakable voice is well sharpened by decades of performing. He challenges himself, delivering music and live performances that have an easy-going clarity and honesty.

Over the years, Hay has earned a reputation for distinct songwriting and solemn vocal delivery. The frequent use of his music on soundtracks — including the hit television show Scrubs, which featured Hays’ songs “Waiting for My Real Life to Begin,” “My Brilliant Feat” and “Beautiful World,” and the sleeper-hit soundtrack to the film Garden State — has proven his timeless appeal.

Hay’s March 13 performance begins at 8 p.m. in the renovated and historic 600-seat auditorium at 111 E. Second St. in downtown Clayton, located about 15 miles east of Raleigh. Tickets are $22 and can be purchased by phone at 919-553-1737, at The Clayton Center Box Office from 10 a.m. until noon and from 1 until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or online at

Please note this show will contain adult humor and language.
