Living Colour arrived on the music scene in the 1980s and by decade’s end had paved the way for a more open-minded musical landscape. Living Colour’s debut album “Vivid” was released in 1988 and the video of their hit “Cult of Personality” was featured prominently on MTV. The band earned its first of several Grammy® Awards as “Cult of Personality” was named the Best Hard Rock Performance at the 1989 Grammys. Shortly thereafter, Living Colour opened for the Rolling Stones during the legendary band’s first U.S. tour in eight years.

Living Colour appeared at the inaugural Lollapalooza tour in the summer of 1991 and continued to entertain its dedicated following until the band broke up in 1995. After band members pursued solo projects, Living Colour reunited in the summer of 2001 and launched a new tour. In 2013, the 25th anniversary of the release of “Vivid,” the band embarked on successful tours throughout Europe, Japan, North America, and South America. Living Colour is currently recording a new album, “Shade” that is set to be released late this year.
