Continuing the anniversary tour announcements, Southern new wave legends the B52s have announced dates for a 40th anniversary tour of North American set for August and September. And the touring openers are no slouches either, because Berlin and OMD will be coming along for the ride!

Unfortunately, Orlando got overlooked this time around, but there are two nearby shows for those who need to dance this mess around.

The B52s play 40th anniversary shows at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on Wednesday, Aug. 28 and the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Jacksonville on Friday, Aug. 30.
