The B-52s’ Farewell Tour Dates

The beloved Georgia band has a run of U.S. dates between August and November

If you figured The B-52s had just one big rocket in their cannon, then take a good hard look at yourself.

True, the fun-loving alternative rock band landed a hit with 1978’s riff-heavy “Rock Lobster,” the type that just doesn’t go away. In the same year, we also visited “Private Idaho”.

The party will end soon for the self-proclaimed “world’s greatest party band.”

Then, more than decade later, an improbable slew of hits. In 1989, when Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails announced its arrival, house music was sweeping the U.K. and Europe, and grunge was on the way, the B-52s delivered more goods with “Roam” and “Love Shack”.

After 45 years of performing and more than 20 million albums sold, the finishing line is in sight, in the form of a farewell tour which kicks off late August.
