Concert Announcement: B52s August 25

The B52s are coming to the Ryman for a very special show this summer. The August 25 date goes on sale Friday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. and tickets will be available here. Tickets are $125, $74, $45 and $25.

The $125.00 tickets wil be available via online purchase only. The tickets will be available for pickup on the night of the show after 5 pm at the Ryman Box Office. The price includes a meet & greet and photo op with the band.

The B-52s have always cut a wide path, from early college radio to 80s New Wave to the MTV era, from post-punk to retro-surf to the very core of dance music itself. Theirs is a body of work that is singular, timeless and beloved. There’s no mistaking the signature call-and-response vocal play of singers Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, and Cindy Wilson matched with the unique guitar stylings of Keith Strickland. And with over twenty million albums sold and a nonstop touring schedule, this revolutionary rock band shows no signs of slowing down. The band has just released their first-ever live CD, DVD and Blu-Ray, With the Wild Crowd! Live in Athens, GA. Recorded in the band’s hometown, the show commemorated the band’s 34th anniversary of their first-ever live show on Valentine’s Day 1977. With the Wild Crowd! is filled with all the excitement, fervor and energy of a classic B-52s dance party, a showcase for the non-stop, high-octane force of a group that has never lost their youthful and dynamic energy.

Straight No Chaser will return to the Ryman Dec. 13 for a special holiday show. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 11 at 10:00 a.m. and are available here.

Straight No Chaser – who was featured on the “Generation YouTube” episode of ABC’s 20/20 – is using the tour to continue expanding on their social media interaction with fans. The group credits a large amount of its success to its early adoption and encouragement of sharing content. “This group started because of a viral video on YouTube,” explains group member Randy Stine. “From day one, we have encouraged fans to upload photos and videos from our shows, even expanding venue photo policies to ensure that this was possible. We are excited to really drive home the idea of building a fan community around content by naming our tour #SNCLive.” As its name suggest, #SNClive will be a multi-platform concert event, with the hashtag giving fans a way to search and categorize content specific to this tour across all social media platforms.

The tour will follow seven shows this summer and the first ever Straight No Chaser Cruise – CHASERS AT SEA – on the Carnival Destiny. Leaving port from Miami on October 11th, fans will travel to Key West, FL and Cozumel, Mexico, returning on October 14th. For more information about CHASERS AT SEA visit http://www.snccruise.com.

PBS will also continue to support Straight No Chaser by airing their highly successful TV special, SONGS OF THE DECADES, during the June and Fall pledge periods. The special shows Straight No Chaser taking a musical journey through the pop songbook, from doo-wop to contemporary pop, all performed with the distinctive SNC twist and filmed during the group’s exclusive summer concert engagement at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City in 2011.
