The gates will open at 6 p.m. The band’s performance will begin at 7 p.m.
Come hear the B-52s in a Rock-n’ Roar Summer Concert at the National Zoo!
Enjoy party music in a truly unique setting. Thirty years and 20 million albums after their debut, the B-52s remain among the most beloved rock stars ever.
Classic dance-rock tunes like “Love Shack” and “Roam” have made the group one of the world’s greatest party bands. While the band was originally formed to appeal to people outside the mainstream, its combination of rock’n’ roll, funk and retro-hip, the B-52s appeal to audiences of all ages, performing their own unique blend of music and showmanship to millions of fans around the world.
On February 18, 2011 the B-52s played a special 34th Anniversary show at the Classic Center in their hometown of Athens, Georgia. The show took place 4 days after the 34th anniversary date of their first-ever show, Feb. 14, 1977. The show was filmed and recorded for a forthcoming DVD and CD release.
