B-52s Add Additional Shows, Art Exhibit, Book Signing in Las Vegas

The B-52s are bringing back the “Love Shack” and “Rock Lobster” for more shows at The Venetian.

On Monday, casino officials said due to “incredible fan demand”, there will also be five new shows in April. They’re scheduled for April 12, 13, 17, 19, and 20. Tickets for the new shows will go on sale to the general public on Friday at 10 a.m.

The band was formed in October 1976 in Athens, Georgia. They named themselves after the “Southern slang for exaggerated ‘bouffant’ hairdos.”

In honor of the band’s additional performances, Pinkbox Doughnuts is also selling special treats that could send you to a show. On Thursday, Aug. 31, participating locations across the valley will see “The B-52s” doughnut, which has tie-dye frosting on a raised doughnut that is filled with confetti whip and topped with the band’s logo. Random doughnuts will have special pink tickets in them and one customer at each location will win a pair of tickets to the Sept. 3 show. You can see those locations below.
