The B-52s are back and ready to rock the UK in their European Farewell Tour. They are visiting the Sage Gateshead as part of their four special, final shows in the UK.
You don’t need to look too hard to see or hear the multi-dimensional influence of The B-52s. Loud anthems like Dance This Mess Around, Love Shack, and Rock Lobster might resound, but the group have quietly impacted alternative music, fashion, and culture over the course of four-plus decades.
Selling more than 20 million albums worldwide, the GRAMMY® award-nominated B52s have ignited a legacy of innovation and inspiration that dates back to 1976.

Countless accolades have been bestowed upon King’s X over the years and, since their formation in 1980, they have grown to become one of the most universally admired bands in hard rock and heavy metal.
Blending big vocals with intricate grooves and heavy guitars, they are fronted by vocalist and guitarist, Ty Tabor; ably supported by vocalist and bass guitarist, Doug Pinnick, and vocalist and drummer, Jerry Gaskill, Kings X produce classic rock for a new generation.
