The B-52s to perform at The Venetian Las Vegas

26 April 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- 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 include three dates at The Venetian Theater inside The Venetian Las Vegas 19, 21 and 22 October 2022. The shows are scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.

Tickets start at $49.50, plus applicable fees, and will go on sale to the general public Friday, April 29 at 10 a.m. PT. Tickets will be available for purchase at Ticketmaster.com, venetianlasvegas.com, any box office at The Venetian Resort, or by calling 702.414.9000 or 866.641.7469.

The Venetian Resort Grazie Rewards members, as well as Live Nation customers, will receive access to a pre-sale running from Wednesday, 27 April at 10 a.m. PT through Thursday, 28 April at 10 p.m. PT.

In addition, to kick off their farewell tour, The B-52s will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Wednesday, April 27. MRC Films and Fulwell 73 have announced the long awaited film documentary on the iconic band will be released in early 2023. Directed by Craig Johnson (Skeleton Twins; Wilson; Alex Strangelove) and executively produced by Fred Armisen, the film will trace the incredible journey and influence of the band. The film has also been given generous support of all band members including many personal archival photos and films that have never been released.

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.”
