Dust off those go-go boots and shine your dancing shoes because the B-52s are coming!

It is well known that the B-52s are “The World’s Greatest Party Band”. And forty years and over twenty million albums into their career, there can be no doubt as to why they remain one of rock music’s most beloved and enduring bands.

“No novelty, the B-52s may be the most subversive band America ever gave us…Campy? Yes. Colorful? Yes. Fun? Very much so. But none of this should take away from their value as vanguards”- Salon
