About the Event

With 25 years in the business and album sales topping 20 million, The B-52s have created a beloved catalog of music replete with an unforgettable collection of dance-rock tunes. From their debut single—the garage-rock party classic “Rock Lobster”—to their first ever Top 10 hit, “Love Shack,” the band has become embedded into the landscape of American dance-pop music. In 2008, The B-52s released Funplex. With primal guitar hooks, driving drums and unmistakable vocals, Newsweek says of the album: “[It’s] like a sonic shot of vitamin B12, the dance floor beats, fuzzy guitar rifts and happy, shiny lyrics keep the energy going.” Don’t miss the legendary B-52s in concert in the Creative Arts Center!
