The band to perform its infectious music at Philly’s casino in June 

PHILADELPHIA — March 26, 2018 — Known as “the world’s greatest party band,” The B-52s will bring their unforgettable dance-rock hits — such as “Rock Lobster” and “Love Shack” — to the Rivers Casino Philadelphia Event Center on Friday, June 1, at 9 p.m. Show tickets go on sale beginning Friday, March 30, and cost from $79 to $99.

During the band’s 40-plus years in the industry, The B-52s have sold more than 20 million albums and have performed for sold-out crowds worldwide. From their classic rock songs, which include “Dance This Mess Around,” “Private Idaho” and “Roam,” to the 2008 pop CD “Funplex,” The B-52s are one of rock music’s most beloved and enduring bands.

“We are ecstatic for The B-52s to turn The Event Center into party central,” said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia. “Their upbeat and infectious music will bring everyone to their feet!”
