Juliana Hatfield rejoins The Lemonheads for fall U.S. dates with The Psychedelic Furs

British New Wave stars The Psychedelic Furs are rolling out concert dates across the West, Southwest and East Coast as part of a new U.S. tour planned for this fall, and they’ll be joined for at least some of the shows in October by Evan Dando and The Lemonheads — with former member Juliana Hatfield back on bass.

The Furs so far only have announced dates in September, and neither that band nor The Lemonheads have formally unveiled plans to tour together, but the Blake Babies co-founder tweeted the news last night, writing, “oh yeah–lemonheads –trio, me on bass, supporting psychedelic furs– october..more on this later.”

Hatfield, who played on The Lemonheads’ best-known album, It’s a Shame About Ray, has been playing acoustic gigs with Dando in recent years.

A quick scan of the web reveals only one confirmed date so far paring the Furs and The Lemonheads: Port Chester, N.Y., on Oct. 20. We did find, however, three other Furs concerts set for October in Portland, Seattle and Pensacola, Fla., that have yet to be announced by the band.

We’ll update with further dates as they emerge.

Sept. 21: House of Blues, Houston, TX

    I really hope they support the Furs at the belly up. That would be legendary!

  2. Please come to Australia P. Furs, please please please – particularly Adelaide and Perth who miss out on tours a bit too often!!!!

  3. Start early in Houston! I’ve had my tix for that show since they went on sale months ago. Never seen the Lemonheads…but I did see Juliana on her solo tour for “Only Everything.” Damn, what a fantastic double-bill it would be…come on down, y’all! This will be the PFurs’ fourth show here in three years. I think they like us!

  4. I just saw the P.Furs and the Lemonheads last night in Royal Oak MI and I’m sad to report that there was NO Juliana Hatfield playing bass with the Lemonheads.

    I ran into the Lemonheads current drummer after they played and asked “where’s Juliana Hatfield?” and that “I thought I heard she was playing bass” he just said “She couldnt be here for personal reasons”.
    Ive been looking all over the web to see what the reason might be, but nothing.

    I hope Slicing Up Eyeballs can do some some investigating on this and let those of us who care, know what happened.
