B-52s TicketsThe B-52s is an American rock and pop band from Athens, Georgia, that emerged from the new wave period of the late 1970s. The band's name derives from a type of beehive hairstyle that was popular from the 1960s onward. The B-52s is primarily known for a string of hits in the 1980s and early 1990s that became ubiquitous in playlists around the world. It has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and continues to provide fans with an exciting live music experience.
The World's Greatest Party BandThe B-52s formed almost by accident in 1976. Following drinks at a Chinese restaurant in Athens, Georgia, the band members played an impromptu jam session and discovered that they had synergy together. The band quickly made a name for itself with its catchy, infectious tunes, particularly the hit song "Rock Lobster." Upon releasing its self-titled debut album on July 6, 1979, the band became an immediate mainstream success with more than a million copies sold in the United States alone. The band reached its apotheosis in 1989 with the release of Cosmic Thing, which sold more than 4 million copies. The hit single "Love Shack" became a staple of dance floors around the world. After launching Good Stuff in 1992, the band went on an extended hiatus from the recording studio. During this time, the band released a series of retrospective and compilation albums while touring widely. It also recorded music for TV shows and films. The B-52s emerged again with the launch of Funplex in 2008, its first new album in 16 years. More recently, the band has performed at the TV Land Awards, the CMT Music Awards and the Montreal Jazz Festival. It has received three nominations from the Grammy Awards, including Best Pop Performance by Duo or Group with Vocal twice: first for "Love Shack" in 1989 and then for "Roam" in 1990. Good Stuff also received a nomination for Best Alternative Music Album in 1992.
