The B-52s     “With The Wild Crowd!     – Live In Athens, GA”      On 10 October 2011, Eagle Rock Entertainment is delighted to release “With The Wild Crowd! – Live In Athens, GA” , the first official B-52s live album.  Recorded in the B-52s hometown of Athens, Georgia in February, this album captures a gig commemorating the 34th anniversary of the band’s first ever live show on Valentine’s Day 1977. Wig-wearing, boa-draped, glitter-covered fans came from near and far to celebrate and saw the band deliver a sizzling 90 minute set that turned Athens’ Classic Center into a cosmic dancehall.  “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.      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 is high spirited  good time rock ‘n’ roll packed with great tunes, wild romance, blood pumping grooves and a lot of fun.
