The B-52’s have announced a farewell tour, which begins in Seattle on August 22. It wraps up in mid-November in Atlanta, with the Tubes and KC & The Sunshine Band taking support slots along the way. See the full schedule below.
In the fall of 2019, band member Fred Schneider told Billboard that the B-52’s wouldn’t embark on any more tours, but that they’d still make occasional festival appearances. The band’s most recent album is 2008’s Funplex, which arrived 16 years after its predecessor, 1992’s Good Stuff.
