The B-52‘s recently announced via social media that they will end their farewell tour next year with a 10-night residency at the Venetian Theatre at the Venetian Resort Las Vegas.
The shows are set to take place May 5-6, 10, and 12-13; August 25-26, and 30; and September 2-3, according to the band.
The schedule follows the band’s previously announced headlining dates on January 6-8 at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, which were rescheduled earlier this month after Kate Pierson came down with strep throat.
“While it is true our touring days are ending soon in Georgia, we invite you to join us in the entertainment capital of the universe … Vegas!!” the band wrote on Facebook. “Let’s do this!”
“Who knew what started as a way to have some fun and play music for our friends’ at house parties in Athens in 1977 would evolve into over 45 years of making music and touring the world,” Pierson said earlier this year when the farewell tour was announced. “It’s been cosmic.”
