Grammy winners The Mavericks are an American musical treasure, with a sound that’s as rousing as it is stubbornly impossible to pin down.
The Mavericks, masters of country-Latino-rock’n’roll, born in the rich cultural mix of Miami then tempered in Nashville’s country hothouse, rode high in the country and rock charts of the 1990s with culture-crossing hits like What A Crying Shame and All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down. Then, they conquered Europe with the titanic feel-good party classic Dance the Night Away, a 400,000-seller in the UK.
The Mavericks are true American originals, heirs to the great song writing traditions of Cuba and Miami, of Nashville and San Antonio and Memphis. Now, on their 30th anniversary as a band, they’re back to remind the world why they’re so good.
The B-52s Plus special guests
Saturday 29 June, 7pm
The B-52’s are back and ready to rock the UK in their Farewell European Tour, playing four special final shows in the UK, including Sage Gateshead in June!
As loud as anthems like Dance This Mess Around, Love Shack, and Rock Lobster might resound, the group have quietly impacted alternative music, fashion, and culture over the course of four-plus decades.
Selling more than 20 million albums worldwide, the Grammy Award-nominated The B52s; Fred Schneider (vocals, toy piano), Kate Pierson (vocals, keyboards), Cindy Wilson (vocals, percussion), and Keith Strickland (guitar, drums, keys, programming) have ignited a legacy of innovation and inspiration that dates back to 1976.
