Belgian EBM pioneers Front 242 were announced earlier this week as headliners of Chicago’s Cold Waves festival in September — but that won’t be the group’s only U.S. show this fall. Jean-Luc De Meyer and Co. will play a total of 12 North American dates this September and October.
The trek, dubbed Circling Overland Tour 2017, opens Sept. 29 at Irving Plaza New York City, heads south, plays a couple California dates, then a pair of Canadian shows in Toronto and Montreal, then ends up back on the East Coast, wrapping up Oct. 7 in Boston.
