Due to the high demand of the September 15 show at Symphony Hall, the B-52s have announced a second performance with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on September 14! The newly announced concert will commemorate the B-52s’ 40th Anniversary, marked by the band’s first show, a house party, which took place in 1977. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 19 at noon at Ticketmaster and the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office.

And nearly 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. Any mystery concerning the band’s longevity and ongoing appeal is immediately solved when exposed to a B-52s concert experience. From groundbreaking songs like “Rock Lobster,” “Dance This Mess Around” and “Private Idaho“ to chart-topping hits like “Love Shack” and “Roam” and “Deadbeat Club” to their thrilling reemergence on the pop scene with their 2008 CD Funplex, the B-52s’ unforgettable dance-rock tunes start a party every time their music begins.
As they take their party-music revolution into the 21st century the B-52s show no signs of slowing down, serving up their own unique blend of music and showmanship to millions of fans around the world.
