Tin roof, rusted! The B-52s, the party band, turns the House of Blues in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay into the “Love Shack” during a three-night engagement July 7-9 with original members Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson.

Think you can’t have an all-night party with this rock band? Think again. The band is behind hits such as “Rock Lobster,” “Dance This Mess Around” and “Private Idaho,” as well as “Love Shack” and “Roam” and “Deadbeat Club.” The B-52s re-emerged on the pop scene with their 2008 CD Funplex.

Shows for those over 18 start at 8:30 p.m. Tickets start at $59.50 at HouseofBlues.com or by calling 702-632-7600.
