B52s Keith, Kate and Cindy
Do the Shu-ga-Loo , Do the Shy Tuna, Do the Camel Walk, Do the Hip-o-crit, Do the Coo-ca-Choo, Do the Aqua-Velva, Do the Dirty Dog, Do the Escalator and don't forget the hippy hippy forward hippy hippy hippy hippy hippy shake….

So it was time to put on some glad rags, ok for me it was a clean shirt and tidy jeans, and it was off to Manchester  with Peri to see the B52s the best dance and party band ever……  ( well I know a lot of people who think this is correct and I would agree with them ).

The audience was definitely more mature than some concerts I have been to recently but there was a number of younger fans who were certainly enjoying themselves.  The B52's played a great set, it was a mixture of songs from the new album and a number of old classics like Love Shack, Roam, Planet Claire and Rock Lobster. They were on stage for 85-90 minutes, a lot longer than some younger bands.

I even went to Birmingham the next night to see them again,  TIP Manchester Academy is a much nicer venue than Birmingham Academy for seeing bands, better parking and even air conditioning.
