The Psychedelic Furs will head back out on the road in the U.S. next month for a just-announced, 13-date trek that will feature Robyn Hitchcock — who covered the Furs’ 1984 classic “The Ghost in You” on his recent The Man Upstairs album — opening most of the shows.
The tour opens March 29 in Austin, Texas, and includes four shows in that state, plus a number of midwestern dates followed by concerts in Millvale, Penn., and Buffalo, N.Y., in mid-April Hitchcock, whose new self-titled album comes out at the end of April, will open all but the Milwaukee show.
37 years after opening for @pfurs in the Soft Boys, I get to do so again solo. Time has coated them with a deeper cool. Dates HERE: https://t.co/6Z6rLogK5d

Following the spring dates, the Furs also will play an ’80s Weekend concert in Los Angeles in July, joined by OMD, Colin Hay, The Fixx, Berlin and Belinda Carlisle.
