The World’s Greatest Party Band, the B-52s will return to City National Grove of Anaheim on Friday, February 8.
With over twenty million albums into their career, there is no doubt as to why the B-52s remain among the most unique and beloved rock stars ever. From groundbreaking songs like “Rock Lobster,” “Dance This Mess Around” and “Private Idaho” to chart-topping hits like “Love Shack” and “Roam” and “Deadbeat Club” to their thrilling reemergence on the pop scene with their 2008 CD Funplex the B-52s’ unforgettable dance-rock tunes start a party every time their music begins.
With The Wild Crowd—Live In Athens, GA is the first official B-52s live album, a sizzling 90 minute set recorded in the band’s hometown on February 11, 2011. The show marked the 34th anniversary of their first-ever concert, Valentine’s Day 1977. Wig-wearing, boa-draped, glitter-covered fans came from near and far to celebrate the historic event and turned Athens’ Classic Center into a cosmic dancehall.
As they take their party-music revolution into the 21st century they show no signs of slowing down, serving up their own unique blend of music and showmanship to millions of fans around the world.
