Proceeds from this concert will help to construct an AIDS memorial in San Diego.
The B52’s, The Fixx and the English Beat are warping back from the 80’s to take over the Embarcadero Marina Park South for a very special concert on August 14.
SDPIX is offering a chance to win two tickets to the event and one grand prize of a VIP table for four.
This benefit concert sponsored by the San Diego Memorial AIDS Task Force is raising money to construct a permanent AIDS memorial in San Diego.
The B-52s, known for their hits “Rock Lobster” and “Love Shack” were personally affected by AIDS when band member and brother to lead singer Cindy Wilson died of the disease in 1985.
"He really had a vision,” said sister Cindy Wilson after her brother’s death. “He was one of the strongest elements of the B-52s from the beginning.”
Since then, the band has become HIV/AIDS activists, creating public service announcements and doing charity concerts worldwide for the cause.
San Diego is one of the only major U.S. cities which doesn’t have a memorial dedicated to the many people affected by HIV/AIDS.
The San Diego Memorial AIDS Task Force, co-chaired by San Diego First Lady Kathrine Stuart Faulconer, and local LGBT activist Nicole Murray-Ramirez are hoping to change that with this special evening of music and nostalgia.
The B-52’s Benefit Concert featuring The Fixx and The English Beat will be held on Sunday, August 14 at 6 pm at Embarcadero Marina Park South, 206 Marina Park Way, San Diego, CA 92101.
