The B-52's will be celebrating a 40th anniversary with a world tour in 2019.
The tour begins in June with European dates, followed by festival appearances throughout the Summer. The newly announced North American concert leg starts in early August, with OMD and Berlin joining the bill as opening bands on select dates.
Technically, the band formed over 40 years ago in 1976, but they released their self-titled first LP in 1979 (featuring such hits as "Rock Lobster" and "Dance This Mess Around"). The core original members — Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Cindy Wilson, and Keith Strickland — are all still in the band which is a special thing these days. It is also critically important, considering the chemistry between them on stage that creates the B-52's unique and original sound. In related news, the is a new documentary film about the group in the works, produced by Fred Armisen.
