, Staff

The sounds of the 80’s will ring through the seaport on Thursday, June 9 as The B-52s and The Go-Go’s hit Boston for a show at the Bank of America Pavilion. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $30 to $50, will go on-sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. The show will presented by Boston Pride as part of the annual Boston Pride week celebrations.

This will be The B-52s biggest Boston show in years as they have played smaller venues such as the Cape Cod Melody Tent and The Lowell Summer Music Series’ Boarding House Park in recent years. The band released their first album in 16 years in 2008 with Funplex. Their current live show consists of tracks from their most recent release, greatest hits, and rarities.

The Go-Go’s were slated to embark on a farewell tour last year before guitarist Jane Wiedlin injured her knee in a hiking accident. However the group has decided not to break up and will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their debut album Beauty and the Beat.
