    Eagle Rock Entertainment has released With the Wild Crowd! – Live In Athens, GA, which has the distinction and honor of being the first-ever official B-52's live album. With the Wild Crowd! was recorded in the B-52s' hometown of Athens, Georgia in February 2011 at a show that commemorated the band's 34th anniversary of their 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 90-minute set that turned Athens' Classic Center into a cosmic dancehall.

    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 CD is high-spirited, good time rock 'n' roll packed with great tunes, wild romance, blood pumping grooves and a lot of fun. 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.

    Only the B-52s can lay claim to their one-of-a-kind, revolutionary sound. And on With The Wild Crowd! – Live In Athens, GA., 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 unmistakable B-52s set that is packed with all their fans' favorites. The show was also filmed in high definition and will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in 2012. Simply unmissable.
