Las Vegas Concert Photography--The B-52s

Last Saturday night, The B-52's took the stage at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel.  At 37 years of age, I don't consider myself old, but I was simply amazed by the fact that there are people in their 20s that don't know who The B-52s are!  On the same note, I was just as amazed at the number of tweens present in the audience that apparently did know who they were and excited to see them perform live!  I'm not a die-hard B-52s fan, but, after all, they do have one of the biggest party hits of all time!  So to have the opportunity to photograph a band that helped musically define the era during which I grew up is pretty cool.  And props to the parents who ensure their kids know about bands lilke The B-52s.

But like all bands from 20 years ago, the members have aged and they may or may not look like you remember them.  Some bands are double plagued by time and despite the fact that they're 20+ years older, still think they sound as good as they did back then. Fortunately, for The B-52s, that's not the case.  Sure they've aged, but their sound hasn't.  The whole house was definitely still doing the shimmy!
