About

THE B-52S IN CONCERT:
 
Since forming in 1976, The B-52s have always stood out for their thrift-store chic style and ability to craft catchy, retro-inspired hits. Over the years they might have let their beehives down, but every-thing else about the band is still as tight as it was 30 years ago. Their call-and-response choruses always get fans singing along, and their fun and funky grooves will have you dancing right along with the band. The B-52s are taking their party atmosphere to select cities across the U.S. on their 2015 tour, bringing all their cool style and flamboyant fun to a town near you.

BACKGROUND SNAPSHOT:
 
Named after a particular type of beehive hairdo, The B-52s rocketed out of Athens, Georgia in the late ’70s. Starting with their smash hit “Rock Lobster”, the band developed a reputation for campy fun and catchy melodies that carried over to other favorites like “Planet Claire” and “Private Idaho”. By the end of the decade, the band achieved a major mainstream radio breakthrough with the hits “Love Shack” and “Roam”. The band stayed relevant into the ’90s, appearing in The Flintstones live action movie (as “The BC-52’s”) and performing the theme song from the Nickelodeon cartoon Rocko’s Modern Life. Almost 40 years later, this zany garage band is still having a blast -- and still sounds like a blast from the past.

    Party out of Bounds!

    by BelaDeb on 9/10/23Venetian Theatre at the Venetian Resort - Las Vegas

    Still America’s greatest party band. They bring it on and still sound amazing. Danced the entire show! Kate at 75 is UNBELIEVABLE. She never stopped dancing. Sounds like she did 40 years ago. Fred was his usual entertaining self and Cindy carried her voice perfectly. Hope they never retire! We hope to be there to the end.

    Entertaining Show

    by Vinylinist on 9/8/23Venetian Theatre at the Venetian Resort - Las Vegas

    This was my first time seeing The B-52s live. The band was tight, the vocals well-rehearsed, and the costumes/makeup/visuals were spot on. The three remaining original members were up front and engaging with the audience. When the audience recognized the songs, they stood up and danced. When they were unfamiliar with a song, regardless of the "beat,"they stayed seated and watched. The venue at The Venetian Theater was sold out, and that seemed to feed the energy of the performers. Still, I'm not sure how to put my finger on it - the three leads seemed distracted and not in sync with each other. It's as if they have done it so long that one would assume the other two members would cover something, and then it was missing, then one would catch it and add it. This was especially true with some of the known harmonies. As an audience member, I knew immediately that this was truly a LIVE show with zero pre-recorded elements or backing tracks. This made me appreciate the show even more! I highly recommend bringing your own earplugs, or purchasing some at the merchandise booth on your way in. It's a loud show, and the audience loves to whistle and scream, too.

    Doesn't matter what seats you buy

    by Elaine K on 9/6/23Venetian Theatre at the Venetian Resort - Las Vegas

    We bought good seats on Tier1, 3rd row center. Once the concert started, people on the first row stood up and blocked views from everyone behind them. It doesn't matter if you have good seats, the venue did not care and did not ask people to stay seated.

    Great but too loud!

    by M. E. on 9/6/23

    We sat in the fifth row to the right. Venue is beautiful. Opening act DJ was a bit disappointing with his mismatched mashups. The B52s were great! Great fun and their voices sound great. But these old GenX ears can’t take that volume anymore! I could barely understand the words to the songs or what they said when they spoke. I would still see them again but maybe a different seat.

    Still awesome

    by Beef on 9/6/23Venetian Theatre at the Venetian Resort - Las Vegas

    The venue was great, the crowd was energized & the B-52’s were ROCKIN! I went to ATL to see them & now to Vegas. Who know we might return to Vegas next April to see them again.
