The B-52s Announce Farewell Tour with Tracy Wormworth

Tracy Wormworth

This year will be the last time to get “tin roof rusted” as The B-52s have announced a tour billed as their “final tour ever of planet Earth.” The band, known for their hits “Love Shack” and “Rock Lobster”, will say goodbye over 15 tour dates this fall.

“No one likes to throw a party more than we do, but after almost a half-century on the road, it’s time for one last blow-out with our friends and family…our fans.,” says singer Fred Schneider. “And with KC & The Sunshine Band and The Tubes on board, it’s going to be one hell of a farewell party at these concerts.”

The B-52s have been anchored by bassist Tracy Wormworth since 1992 when Dave Hofstra left the fold. An accomplished musician, she’s also served as touring bassist for Sting, Wayne Shorter, Cyndi Lauper, Regina Carter, and more.

Check out the B-52s performing their smash hit “Love Shack” on Jimmy Kimmel:
