About The Show
Selling over 20 million albums worldwide, The B-52s have quietly impacted alternative music, fashion, and culture over the course of four-plus decades.
They inched towards the forefront of the post-punk movement in America codified by 1979s self-titled The B-52s. Not only did the record go gold, but it also placed at #152 on Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” and #99 on VH1’s “Greatest Albums of All Time.” The watershed album Cosmic Thing (1989) elevated the B-52s to another galaxy altogether. It moved 5 million-plus units and spawned a string of Top 10 smashes in the form of the Grammy®-nominated “Roam” and “Love Shack” – which Rolling Stone lauded on the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.”
After a 16-year hiatus, The B-52’s proved as bright, bold, and boundless as ever on 2008’s Funplex. The momentum only ramped up when they roamed on tour in 2015 alongside Tears for Fears and more. As they prepare a high-profile documentary and first official book, The B-52s look forward to inspiring future generations.
