This Thursday, B-52's vocalist Cindy Wilson is stopping by Will's Pub for the Orlando leg of her solo summer tour, and she's dedicating the show to the late Billy Manes.

Manes passed away Friday, July 21, at the age of 45, surrounded by his husband Anthony Mauss, friends and family at Orlando Regional Medical Center.



In 2015, Manes left Orlando Weekly to become editor-in-chief at Watermark, an LGBTQ-focused publication. An interview with Wilson, who Manes was friends with for decades, was his last published interview with Watermark.

Wilson made the announcement of her show dedication on her Facebook yesterday, July 23.
You can expect to hear tracks from her latest album, Change, as she pays her respects. Wilson, The Pauses and The Sh-Booms will play at Will's on July 27. Tickets are $12.
