Two of the UK’s most creative & iconic bands The Psychedelic Furs & James announce a very special North American co-headlining tour this summer. Starting on July 5 in Toronto, the two bands embark on a 24-date tour across North America, making stops across the east-coast, mid-west and wrapping up at the prestigious Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on August 7.
With their legendary combined chart-topping back-catalogue, that spans across decades and generations between them, boasting countless classics such as the Furs’ ‘Love My Way’ and ‘Pretty In Pink,’ and James’ global hits ‘Laid’ and ‘Sit Down’ to remarkable new music from both acts, this upcoming tour is destined to go down in the rock history books as an unforgettable one.
James’s lead singer Tim Booth comments “We are so happy to be returning to the USA and honored to be co-headlining with ‘The Psychedelic Furs’ – a band we have loved since day one.
To achieve maximum pleasure from our show please give a listen to our new CD ‘Living in Extraordinary Times”. We improvise and change our set on a nightly basis so expect the unexpected.”
Richard Butler, the Psychedelic Furs vocalist comments “We are excited to be back on tour this summer and are especially pleased to be joined by James, a personal favourite of mine, who have had my attention from the beginning. And…we may be playing some new Furs songs. We hope to see you along the way!”
Joining the tour as an opening act will be LA’s latest ones to watch; the 4-piece Dear Boy.
Be sure to catch The Psychedelic Furs & James performing songs old and new live this summer. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, April 5. For more details, go to:
