One of England’s most outrageous and flamboyant bands comes to our stage, live and on fire. Led by singer Richard Butler and his brother Tim on bass guitar, the Psychedelic Furs rose from the British post-punk scene. Their music went through several phases, from an initially austere art rock sound, later touching on new wave and now having evolved into more of an edgy pop rock sound.
They scored several hits in their early career, but were launched to international attention in 1986 when the film director John Hughes used their song "Pretty in Pink" for his movie of the same name. A newly recorded version of the song became the Psychedelic Furs' biggest hit to that time. "Heartbreak Beat", from their 1987 album Midnight to Midnight, was the Furs' biggest Top 40 entry in the US.
The Psychedelic Furs went on hiatus in 1991, and the Butler brothers formed a new band called Love Spit Love. The Psychedelic Furs later regrouped in 2001 and continue to perform around the world.
