5.0 out of 5 stars Totally cosmic, 14 May 2012
By 
J. M. Greer (Hexham, Northumberland United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: With The Wild Crowd! - Live In Athens, Ga [DVD] [2012] [NTSC] (DVD)
Great picture and sound quality and a fantastic performance. If you enjoy the music of B 52 s you will not be dissatisfied with this DVD. It is great fun and the hits just keep coming. The only slightly unnerving thing is the age of most of the audience but I can't complain as I have turned 50 myself. However, there is lots of fun her for people of all ages and a real party atmosphere. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What A Great Live Performance for the B52's., 17 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a great fun live performance this is. The B52's have lost none of their magic and can still connect with an excited audience who appreciate their happy go lucky music style. Most of their past hits are presented here in very high quality which really shows in this bluray. Both visual and sound quality are excellent and live songs such as Rock Lobster and Love Shack sound as great as their studio versions. This set is a great pleasure to watch and is thoroughly recommended.

This review is from: With The Wild Crowd! - Live In Athens, Ga [DVD] [2012] [NTSC] (DVD)
I am gradually adding some of the classic late 70's music to my collection which I couldn't afford at the time, and don't know why I hadn't bought any B-52s music before now. Absolutely brilliant.

An absolutely stunning live show, and shows other bands how they should sound live. I cant fault anything, from the singing with crazy harmonies to the superb band. Buy it, and hook it up through your surround sound... then turn it up!!

This review is from: With The Wild Crowd! - Live In Athens, Ga [DVD] [2012] [NTSC] (DVD)
This performance from the B-52's in their hometown of Athens, Georgia is top-notch. I cannot rate highly enough the tightness of the band, which is held together by the powerhouse drummer Sterling Campbell. His playing is stunning and inventive given the relatively straightforward song structures that the band regularly use.

Keith Strickland has made Ricky Wilson's guitar style his own, with the quirky tuning and choppy riffs. However he has also added to this with his own distinct riffs and a very cool onstage persona (btw how can this guy be nearly 60 years old?!)

Kate, Cindy & Fred are on top form with the girls' voices sounding particularly fine. Absolutely no bum notes here, and they look like they're having genuine fun. The set list is a good mix of the hits and album tracks, but I would personally loved to have seen the sublime 'Juliet Of The Spirits' in the concert too.

A final bonus is the intimate interview with all 4 members of the band sitting in chairs on the same stage (probably during the afternoon's soundcheck). A really great bunch of people who are rarely interviewed, and some fun stories about the band's beginnings as well as thoughts on Ricky plus success in later times with Cosmic Thing and Funplex.

Keith Strickland announced in December 2012 that he will no longer tour with the band (although he will still be a studio member) so buy this and see the last recorded example of the original guys & girls blasting out through your TV! It's superb...

It is impossible not to watch this show and not get nostalgic. The B'52s really represent very well the good old days of new wave with mastery. If you like the band, buy fast ...
