Athens' own new-wave stars and dance-party instigators B-52s have announced an Orlando headlining show to soothe the sting of Orlando not getting a date of their big joint summer tour with Boy George & Culture Club.

Everyone wins though, as the B-52 will get a chance to stretch out and turn the more intimate House of Blues into a veritable love shack for the evening.

The B-52s headline the House of Blues on Sunday, Aug. 19 at p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 27.
