My wife and I have seen the B-52s more than 40 times and the show in Chattanooga was as good as any show we’ve ever seen. They played all of the hits, fan favorites and a couple of deep cuts that had an enthusiastic crowd rocking, dancing and singing along. from start to finish. So glad we got to see them one more and had so much fun with that tacky little dance band from Athens, GA.

Well I don't know about the Venetian show.. but Oct 25, 1980 at the Masonic Temple theatre, downtown Detroit, they absolutely rocked the place! We stood on our main floor seats the entire time dancing, at the end of the night I looked back and 90% of the seats were broken, it was a riot

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! One of the most fun concerts I have ever been to. The Venetian theater was well laid out, great acoustics and comfortable seating. The only downfall was the fact that the restrooms are in the basement. Lots of steps and the option of only one little elevator. Drinks were $20 each in the event area but only a few feet into the casino, the food court sold them for less than half the price. Well worth a few extra steps! Rock on Rock Lobsters!

About The B-52's

The B-52's are an American rock band formed 1976 in Athens, Georgia, United States, the first of many from this college town that has become one of the most important centers in alternative rock. The band formed as Fred Schneider (vocals), Kate Pierson (vocals, organ), Cindy Wilson (vocals, guitar), Ricky Wilson (guitar) and Keith Strickland (drums). After Ricky Wilson died in 1985, Strickland replaced him as a guitarist.

The name comes from the bouffant wigs that are part of the band's distinctive look, worn by singers Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson. Along with Wilson and Pierson, fellow vocalist Fred Schneider, drummer (and later guitarist) Keith Strickland, guitarist Ricky Wilson (Cindy's older brother) formed the band after a drunken night at a Chinese restaurant.

Their sound is particularly marked by the vocals of Wilson and Pierson, with Kate singing in a slightly deeper voice, along with the generally monotone or spoken-word vocals of Schneider. Aside from their vocals, the band also had a unique New Wave sound that was a combination of dance and surf music, and the unusual guitar-string tunings utilized by Ricky Wilson. Although part of the new wave movement, their music was more experimental than most new wave, indulging in all manner of odd vocal and synthesizer effects. It created a quirky dance sound that became very popular.
