Tom Tom Club fans, it’s time to celebrate! 2011 marks the 30th anniversary for the iconic pop group. Formed in 1981 by Talking Heads members Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz, Tom Tom Club will be kicking off the anniversary celebration with two big performances.
On Jan. 11, Tom Tom Club will perform on NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and then follow it up on Jan. 12 with a headlining show at Irving Plaza in the band’s hometown of New York City.
This past year was also a good year for Tom Tom Club. In the fall, the band embarked on their first nationwide tour in 10 years, and on Sept. 28 they released Genius of Live via Nacional Records. The new album includes a Latin remix of Tom Tom Club’s worldwide hit, “Genius Of Love,” and tracks from the album Live At The Club House.
