so slammed, not sure when I'll get around to a more detailed posting. . but back on 8/22 (before I went out of town for a week to Atlanta), saw B52's with OMD & Berlin.
Berlin was incredible, and now that most of the original band is back with Terri, they played all the hits, even "Sex" Terri looks and sounds AMAZING, and the new tracks off the latest album were very good.
OMD was an hour of hit after hit (only didn't know 1 song), and both singers still sound incredible. It was like listening to an album in the 80's
the B's were the B's. . . lots of deep and older cuts (the tour was 40th anniversary - of all the bands, actually - and rumor is it's the last time the B's will be touring).
Kate sounded really good, as did Fred, but Cindy was pretty sharp the whole night on anything solo lead - tho her harmonies with Kate were on point. The overall sound was a bit muddy tho, and kinda robbed them of the "party" atmosphere they often bring. We left after set, before Encore, so missed "Planet Claire" and "Rock Lobster". . but heck, they opened with "Private Idaho" and as noted, lots of deep and classic cuts ("Mesopotamia" !!). . so I was happy.
tho we had bought tix just for Berlin, so I was already thrilled with the evening.
I'd love to catch a B-52s show. Hope the rumors are wrong, and this isn't it for them. I went to their website after reading through your post, and there isn't a whole lot left to choose from on this tour. I've always wanted to see them, but never really kept up with them to know their touring schedule.
Haven’t attended many shows this year (got to 10 concerts and a live podcast in 2018). But most recent was Iron Maiden at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater on 8/22/2019. Great show, it was a legacy tour so all the favs were played. Also the production was incredible.
