Belgian electronic body music pioneers Front 242 — featuring Jean-Luc De Meyer, Daniel Bressanutti, Patrick Codenys and Richard 23 — will make a rare visit to the United States this September, but are only slated to perform three concerts, with gigs planned in New York City, Tampa, Fla., and Chicago, the latter of which will be part of the Cold Waves Festival.
The poster for the three shows, seen above, refers to a 30-year anniversary, but it’s unclear what that’s referring to, since the band formed in 1981 and released its first album, Geography, from which the poster gets its cover art, in 1982, some 32 years ago.

Front 242 tour dates:
Sept. 24: Irving Plaza, New York, NY
Sept. 25: The Orpheum, Tampa, FL
Sept. 27: Cold Waves Festival, Metro, Chicago, IL
