The prolific and popular Colin Hay has eleven solo albums to this credit, and his storytelling is as good as his singing.

Colin Hay, the prolific solo artist best known as the lead singer for the platinum selling Australian band, Men at Work, will appear at the Colonial on May 5 at 8pm to serenade the audience with his musical talent and entertain them with his one of a kind stories.
