On 10 / 11 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.

Only the B-52s can lay claim to their one of a kind revolutionary sound and on "With The Wild Crowd!" Keith Strickland's matchless guitar stylings unite with the trademark call and response vocals of Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson to deliver an unmistakably B-52s set packed with all their fans' favourites. The show was also filmed in high definition and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in 2012. Simply unmissable.
