The Hooters

~ Group


The Hooters are an American rock band from Philadelphia. By combining a mix of rock and roll, reggae, ska and folk music, The Hooters first gained major commercial success in the United States in the mid-1980s due to heavy radio and MTV airplay of several songs including "All You Zombies", "Day by Day", "And We Danced" and "Where Do the Children Go". Their popularity resulted in the band opening the Philadelphia portion of the Live Aid benefit concert in 1985. Bob Geldof has publicly stated (including in the BBC Live Aid Against All Odds documentary) that he didn't see the Hooters as a high-profile band suitable for Live Aid, but that the band was forced on him by the promoter of Live Aid in the United States, Bill Graham. Geldof let his feelings be known during an interview for Rolling Stone saying: "Who the fuck are The Hooters?" The Hooters do not appear on the officially released DVD of the concert.

During the late 1980s and 1990s, The Hooters found significant commercial success internationally, especially in Europe, where they played at The Wall Concert in Berlin in 1990, before they went on hiatus in 1995.

Since reuniting in 2001, The Hooters have staged successful tours in Europe and 2007 saw the release of their first album of new material since 1993, Time Stand Still.
