The B-52s - With The Wild Crowd! - Live In Athens, GA

With The Wild Crowd! - Live In Athens, GA, is the first official B-52s live album and was recorded in the B-52s' hometown of Athens, Georgia in February 2011 at a show that commemorated the band's 34th anniversary of their first-ever live show on Valentine's Day 1977. A B-52s live show is always the best party in town, yet here in front of their home crowd they even managed to turn it up a notch further. This CD is high-spirited, good time rock 'n' roll packed with great tunes, wild romance, blood pumping grooves and a lot of fun.

With The Wild Crowd! - Live In Athens, GA includes the classics: 'Love Shack,' 'Rock Lobster,' 'Give Me Back My Man,' 'Funplex,' 'Roam,' 'Planet Claire,' 'Whammy Kiss,' and many more. Only the B-52s can lay claim to their one-of-a-kind, revolutionary sound. And on With The Wild Crowd! - Live In Athens, GA, Keith Strickland's matchless guitar stylings unite with the trademark call-and-response vocals of Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson to deliver an unmistakable B-52s set that is packed with all their fans' favorites. The show was also filmed in high definition and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in 2012. Simply unmissable.
