Despite initially billing their upcoming tour as “a very limited run of live shows,” New Wave rockers The Psychedelic Furs this week added an eight-date southern leg to their 30th anniversary Talk Talk Talk tour of the U.S. this summer — effectively tripling the original size of the trek.
When the band first announced the run in January, the tour — which will feature brothers Richard and Tim Butler playing their sophomore album in its entirety — featured just eight concerts in Texas and California. About a half-dozen more shows had been added since, and now, with the new leg, the tour stretches 24 dates.
The new shows begin June 25 in New Orleans, about seven weeks after the wrap of the first leg of the tour in Seattle. After New Orleans and a date in Baton Rouge, La., the trek heads to Florida for three shows, then stops in Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina (see full dates below). It’s not known whether more concerts will be added.
UPDATE 5/16/11: With the Talk Talk Talk tour now well underway, the Psychedelic Furs today announced they’re extending the trek by five more shows, and also have a pair of non-Talk Talk Talk concerts planned for August and September (see dates below).
