The B-52’s, continuing the celebration of their 40th anniversary, have announced worldwide tour that is expected to cover more than 10 countries and will include a headlining North American summer tour. The 40-plus-city tour will kick off May 4 in West Palm Beach, Fla., at Sunfest and finishes in New York City on Sept. 24 at Summer Stage in Central Park.

Tickets for the tour are on sale on April 12 at 10 a.m. local time, and will be available here.

The B-52’s scored a pair of #3 pop hits with 1989’s “Love Shack” and 1990’s “Roam.” But they made their mark with “Rock Lobster,” which was on their 1979 self-titled debut.

From the announcement: “In 2018, The B-52’s began their 40th anniversary celebration in style,  co-headlining a massively successful American tour with Culture Club and Thompson Twins, taking over venues across the country.

Full tour dates are below, with more expected to be added in the future. OMD and Berlin will support on select North American dates.
