British synthpop pioneers Heaven 17 have re-rescheduled and expanded their first-ever North American tour — twice delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic — to this September and October.
The duo of Glenn Gregory and Martyn Ware originally planned an eight-date tour of the U.S. and Canada in May 2020 that was to have followed the group’s first-ever U.S. concerts, in New York City and a festival in Long Beach, Calif., in 2017. That was then pushed to early 2021 amid the pandemic, and then canceled again.
Now, the We Don’t Need This Fascist Groove Thang! Tour — expanded to 15 dates — is set to open Sept. 16 in Pawling, N.Y., and run through Oct. 6 in Seattle. Tickets are now on sale.

I got my ticket (Again) !!!
I went to this concert yesterday in Zoetermeer in Holland.
It was a real party. Great show. Pure entertainment.
Im an old school fan of arguably one of the best bands of the 80s from Sheffield. Tickets are quite expensive in detroit for the show. How are they live and should i go?
