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 land at The Chicago Theatre on Friday, October 7, 2022. Show time is 7:30 pm. Special guest will be KC and The Sunshine Band. Reserved seats will become available on Friday, April 29 at 10:00 am through Ticketmaster.com.

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 on board, it’s going to be one hell of a farewell party at these concerts.”
