The B-52s launching US farewell tour tonight in Connecticut


The B-52s are ready to roam around the U.S. one last time, and the influential new wave band is set to officially kick off their farewell tour tonight, September 29, with a show at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

The trek features a total of 19 shows and runs through a three-night stand, November 11-13, at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. The outing will include multiple-night engagements in Chicago, New York City, Las Vegas and San Francisco.

KC & the Sunshine Band will serve as The B-52s’ support act for the first eight concerts and the last five shows on the tour. The Tubes will be the opener at the San Francisco gigs, taking place October 28-30.
