New wave icons The B-52’s have announced the schedule for their farewell tour.
The 15-date tour, which is set to begin with a concert in Seattle on August 22, will conclude on November 11 with a show in Atlanta.
The B-52’s will have The Tubes and KC & The Sunshine Band supporting them on select dates during the trek.
“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,” the B-52’s cofounder Kate Pierson said. “It’s been cosmic.”
“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 blowout with our friends and family . our fans,” cofounder Fred Schneider added. “And with KC and the Sunshine Band and the Tubes on board, it’s going to be one hell of a farewell party at these concerts.”
The band’s last album was Funplex, which arrived in 2008, 16 years after its predecessor, 1992’s Good Stuff.
