With frontman Richard Butler presumably recovered from the spinal surgery that sidelined the band’s New Year’s dates, The Psychedelic Furs today announced a run of seven U.S. concerts in late May and early June — including a pair on the East Coast with The Go-Go’s.
The tour opens May 31 in Agoura Hills, Calif., and continues through mid-June, with dates announced in Las Vegas, Tucson, Ariz., Denver and Chattanooga, Tenn., plus the shows with The Go-Go’s in Vienna, Va., and Red Bank, N.J. The band’s website promises “we’ll have more dates in the next few weeks.”
The Go-Go’s also are touring with The B-52s this summer.
The Furs had been slated to play this past New Year’s Eve in Anaheim, Calif., and New Year’s Day in Las Vegas, followed by three more California concerts. The shows were canceled “due to injury,” which later was elaborated upon to disclose that Butler is recovering from spinal surgery.
The Psychedelic Furs tour dates:
May 31: Canyon Club, Agoura Hills, CA
June 5: Hard Rock on the Strip, Las Vegas, CA
June 6: Rialto Theatre, Tucson, AZ
June 8: Gothic Theatre, Englewood, CO
June 12: Riverbend Festival, Chattanooga, TN
June 13: Filene Center at Wolftrap, Vienna, VA
