Belinda Carlisle to headline White Party T-Dance

PALM SPRINGS — Belinda Carlisle will show thousands of gay men that heaven is a place on earth when she headlines the White Party T-Dance in Palm Springs.

The Grammy nominated soloist and lead singer of 80’s pop group The Go-Go’s, will hit the stage May 7 and “perform her greatest hits” for the Sunday spectacular party at Jeffrey Sanker’s annual desert pilgrimage for gay men, which takes place from May 5 to May 8. Sanker announced Carlisle’s appearance Monday on social media and his website.

James Duke Mason, Carlisle’s openly gay son, also posted about it on his Facebook page.

“Had an amazing time last year, but so excited that my Mom will be the headliner at the WHITE PARTY PALM SPRINGS T-Dance this year! It’s going to be an incredible weekend!,” Mason said.

Advance tickets to the T-Dance, which will feature DJs Abel Aguilera and Ralphi Rosario, are $140 plus a $15 service fee.
