A B-52s concert experience leaves no doubt as to why they are known as “the world’s greatest party band.” The B-52s with the Wild Crowd! Live in Athens, GA, was filmed in the B-52s’ hometown of Athens, Georgia in February 2011 at a show that commemorated 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 this historic event, which saw the band deliver a sizzling set that turned Athens’ Classic Center into a cosmic dance hall. Filmed with eight cameras in stunning high definition and directed by Bruce Green, this brilliant live concert is sure to have viewers shimmying in their living rooms. The B-52s with the Wild Crowd! Live in Athens, GA premieres Tuesday, March 13 at 9:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11). Repeats Friday, March 17 at 10:30p.m. Viewers will learn more about the band's concert at CMAC on July 14th, how to get tickets, and meet the band.
