B-52s 40th Anniversary Tour

Catch these music legends in concert as they celebrate four decades of music joined by special guests to open the show OMD and Berlin.

Sometimes it’s difficult for a group to win over the crowd in an all-seater theatre – it’s that old analogy that if you give people a seat they will sit. However, the B52’s have no problem at all in that department; the whole room will be up on their feet from the very first note of the show – and the crowd won’t stop dancing for a second.

B-52 Promotes Feverish Dancing

The band’s theatrical antics, zany stage persona’s, feverish dancing and glittering back catalogue has the crowd captivated from the start. Fred Schneider’s voice perfectly compliments the superb vocal harmonies laid down by Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson. The trio comes together seamlessly throughout.

It goes without saying that just like a line from one of the band’s hit singles ‘everybody’s moving and everybody’s grooving’, as The B52’s turn this majestic theatre into their very own “Love Shack” on Tyneside. And as expected, the aforementioned track closes out the band’s main set. This timeless classic still sounds as good as it did back in 1989.

A three-song encore may feature an out of this world performance of “Planet Claire”, the band’s frantic punk rock number “6060-842” along with debut single “Rock Lobster” brings tonight’s proceedings to its explosive conclusion.

A Real Life ‘Love Shack’

It’s always difficult for a group to win over the crowd in an all-seater theatre – it’s that old analogy that if you give people a seat they will sit. However, The B52’s have no problem at all in that department; the whole room up on their feet from the very first note of the show – and the crowd doesn’t stop dancing for a second. And that’s not just those in the stalls, but also those in the two tiers of the balcony above.

B-52’s theatrical antics, zany stage persona’s, feverish dancing and glittering back catalogue has the crowd captivated from the beginning of the show. Fred Schneider’s voice perfectly compliments the superb vocal harmonies laid down by Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson. The trio comes together seamlessly throughout.

Both Pierson and Wilson wander into the spotlight as they take the audience through a harmonious rendition of “Legal Tender”, their up-tempo flip side “52 Girls”, and the psychedelic classic “Roam”.

As Schneider returns to the stage, the group often launches into “Party Out Of Bounds”. This seems rather fitting number for the many fans who spill out in the aisles to dance like nobody is watching.

It goes without saying that just like a line from one of the band’s hit singles ‘everybody’s moving and everybody’s grooving’, as The B52’s turn this majestic theatre into their very own “Love Shack”.

Get ready to dance from your seats at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall to such fun rock classics as “Rock Lobster,” “Private Idaho,” and “Love Shack.” The B-52’s 40th Anniversary tour will be coming to Destination Tampa Bay at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on Wednesday, Aug. 28 at 7 p.m. For morwe information click here.
