About The B-52's
The B-52's are an American rock band formed 1976 in Athens, Georgia, United States, the first of many from this college town that has become one of the most important centers in alternative rock. The band formed as Fred Schneider (vocals), Kate Pierson (vocals, organ), Cindy Wilson (vocals, guitar), Ricky Wilson (guitar) and Keith Strickland (drums). After Ricky Wilson died in 1985, Strickland replaced him as a guitarist. The name comes from the bouffant wigs that are part of the band's distinctive look, worn by singers Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson. Along with Wilson and Pierson, fellow vocalist Fred Schneider, drummer (and later guitarist) Keith Strickland, guitarist Ricky Wilson (Cindy's older brother) formed the band after a drunken night at a Chinese restaurant. Their sound is particularly marked by the vocals of Wilson and Pierson, with Kate singing in a slightly deeper voice, along with the generally monotone or spoken-word vocals of Schneider. Aside from their vocals, the band also had a unique New Wave sound that was a combination of dance and surf music, and the unusual guitar-string tunings utilized by Ricky Wilson. Although part of the new wave movement, their music was more experimental than most new wave, indulging in all manner of odd vocal and synthesizer effects. It created a quirky dance sound that became very popular.

Great concert! The warmed up the audience with an A/V montage of a DJ set, followed by KC and the Sunshine Band. But the main event was amazing! The band was tight and the vocals were perfect. The presentation was studio quality and they engendered high energy from the sold out crowd. Lots of dancing at the seats and a threee song encore, ending with Rock Lobster. Perfect!

This was my first time at the Chicago Theatre and it was a beautiful venue with friendly, helpful staff! I've seen The B-52s several times, and the last time was over twenty years ago. What a pleasure to find out that they're still The World's Greatest Party Band and still make me shake it till the butter melts!

That was the farewell tour from this Legendary band and they offered us a mix of their best hits. The concert was excellent but we could hear that the b_52 had not their full voice. Sometime, they sang hoarse, it was due to their old age and it seems the time to leave the musical industry....

Well I don't know about the Venetian show.. but Oct 25, 1980 at the Masonic Temple theatre, downtown Detroit, they absolutely rocked the place! We stood on our main floor seats the entire time dancing, at the end of the night I looked back and 90% of the seats were broken, it was a riot

Overall, solid show. KC and the Sunshine Band were energetic and fun! 15 band members! B52s set was more mixed. Some great moments but some lulls too. Cindy's voice seemed to lag as the set progressed. Videos during B52s set were only average. I recommend the concert but the age was showing...

It was a FANTASTIC Show. It was great to see them again & to sing, dance & enjoy my favorite songs 🎵 ❤️ No complaints here. The B-52'S 🎶 🎶 killed it in my opinion. Two thumbs 👍 way up 👍 🎊 I had a ROCKING GOOD TIME ✌🏻

It was magical!!! Do you know who gave the B52s their start? The Urban Verbs—-my favourite 80s neglected band. Do you know who inspired recluse John Lennon to record again? B52s. Nothing matches sharing a moment in time with yer favourite artist live. Go see them while you can!!!

After seeing two great bands in the same night, Berlin and OMD, the B52s were a little disappointing. They could've played more songs that people knew. They added some of the song from albums that weren't hits instead of sticking to the best songs from their popular albums.

What an amazing experience! The joy and the love that are the B-52s for more than 40 years resonated in this crescendo, this final chapter about a little ol' band made-up of friends from Athens, GA. Thanks for the great show and the wonderful memories!

It was the best night of my life. I kid you not every person there was in a really good mood with great energy. The band sounded surprisingly good. It was the best night of my life.
