THE B-52'S Played Roseland Ballroom
The B-52's looked and sounded fantastic at the Roseland Ballroom last night. The crowd was extremely energetic and most were dressed up for Halloween. What a fun night!
The band premiered about six new songs from their forthcoming album "Funplex", including the title song, 'Pump', 'Juliet of the Spirits', 'Keep This Party Going', and 'Love in the Year 3000'.
Highlights from the set were the the opening number 'Party Out of Bounds', which was followed by a killer version of 'Mesopotamia', as well as 'Strobe Light', 'Roam', 'Give Me Back My Man' and 'Planet Claire'. And of course the place turned into an all out dance masquerade for their biggest hits 'Private Idaho', 'Love Shack', and 'Rock Lobster'.
Unfortunately we missed The Rapture, who opened the show. I heard they were great, but I've also seen them many times before.
