The B-52s Announce Farewell Tour

After 45 years since their first performance, over 20 million albums sold and countless accolades amongst them, there can be no doubt as to why The B-52s have remained one of music’s most groundbreaking and beloved bands. Now, The B-52s are gearing up to return to the road one last time and are announcing a farewell tour that will kick off this summer.

Their North American farewell tour will visit 11 cities across the U.S., kicking off August 22th in Seattle at the breathtaking McCaw Hall – Brotman Auditorium and running through November 11 climaxing at Atlanta’s legendary Fox Theatre. More shows will be added in the coming weeks.

The pre-sale for The B-52s Farewell Tour launches tomorrow, April 27th at 12:00 PM EST. Tickets officially go on sale this Friday, April 29th at 12:00 PM EST. KC and The Sunshine Band and The Tubes are set to make special guest appearances on select dates.

Tickets, information and exclusive VIP Meet & Greet packages will be available at The B-52s.com

In addition, to kick off their farewell tour, The B-52s will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Wednesday, April 27th. MRC Films and Fulwell 73 have announced the long awaited film documentary on the iconic band will be released in early 2023. Directed by Craig Johnson (Skeleton Twins; Wilson; Alex Strangelove) and executively produced by Fred Armisen, the film will trace the incredible journey and influence of the band. The film has also been given generous support of all band members including many personal archival photos and films that have never been released.

Says co-founder Kate Pierson, “Who knew what started as a way to have some fun and play music for our friends’ at house parties in Athens in 1977 would evolve into over 45 years of making music and touring the world. It’s been cosmic.”

Cindy Wilson, who also co-founded the band with her beloved late brother, Ricky, adds, “It has been a wild ride, that’s for sure. We feel truly blessed to have had an amazing career encouraging folks to dance, sing along with us and feel they can be whomever they are with our music.”

Fred Schneider, co-founder and perhaps the most unique front man in rock, sums up the band’s decision to retire from the road, “No one likes to throw a party more than we do, but after almost a half-century on the road, it’s time for one last blow-out with our friends and family…our fans. And with KC & The Sunshine Band and The Tubes on board, it’s going to be one hell of a farewell party at these concerts.”
