Customer Review

on April 13, 2012
This live concert dvd of the B52's performing in their hometown of Athens, Georgia, during February of 2011 is 131 minutes of "PURE FUN". This is simply the B52's at their very best. This concert dvd certainly proves the B52's are the undisputed, "BEST PARTY BAND IN THE WORLD", period. The B52's are really "into it" and so is the huge, packed crowd, making this one fantastic concert dvd. Watching this live concert dvd is "almost like being there", but probably ever better, because of the close-ups, different camera angles and etc.

Along with the B52's, you also get additional backing musicians. B52 Band Members Kate, and Cindy are as lovely as ever. I noticed a sign in the crowd that stated "Ricky is Here". Ricky Wilson, the original guitarist for the B52's died from AIDS in 1985. He was Cindy's brother. It's was nice to see that he was remembered.

Since the Amazon Product Description does not list the songs, then I will. The songs are as follows:
1.Pump
2.Private Idaho
3.Mesoptamia
4.Ultraviolet
5.Dancing Now
6.Give Me Back My Man
7.Funplex
8.Whammy Kiss
9.Deadbeat Club
10.Roam
11.B52 Girls
12.Party Out of Bounds
13.Love in the Year 3000
14.Cosmic Thing
15.Hot Corner
16.Love Shack (Tin Roof RUSTED!!!!)
17.Wig
18.Stobe Light
19.Planet Claire
20.Rock Lobster

Also, you get a bonus Interview with the B52's. This is a very interesting interview, where Keith, Fred, Cindy & Kate recount a history of the band. Fred and Kate were from New Jersey, while Keith, Cindy and the late/great Ricky were from Athens, Georgia (home of The University of Georgia). Also, they recall Ricky's contribution to the band, especially the song "Rock Lobster".

The only shortcoming I could find, is that the 1992 hit "Good Stuff" was not included. However, this in only minor, the rest of the songs are more than good enough to make up for this.

The Bottom Line: This is the B52's after 34 years together, performing as only the "BEST PARTY BAND IN THE WORLD" can perform. BUY IT, YOU'LL LOVE IT!!!!
