24 Jan, 2017 NOTE: Early Stage Time, Auckland, Feb 14
Please note that for one night only, in recognition of the B-52’s 40th Anniversary, Simple Minds will be opening the show with an early stage time and so will play a full set starting at 7.30pm [B-52’s onstage at 9.30pm].
The fabulous B-52s are set to celebrate their 40th anniversary in Australasia as part of their upcoming tour with Simple Minds. The landmark concert happens at Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand on Tuesday February 14, Valentine’s Day.
The B-52s’ Fred Schneider says: “From Athens to Auckland, 40 years and the party ain’t stopping!”,
To mark the occasion, Simple Minds and the B-52s have agreed that the Georgia natives will close the show in Auckland. In a change from previously advertised times, Simple Minds will be on stage at 7.30pm with the B-52s at 9.30pm, both bands playing their usual full sets.
Jim had this to say:
“Bringing our music to Auckland always feels special. More so this time when we join the B-52s as they themselves celebrate their own special anniversary. We very much look forward to playing our part in what is set to a very memorable evening for fans of both bands, and fans of great live music in general.”
