AN EVENING WITH THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS
Friday, April 7 at 8 p.m.
Dissect today’s alternative rock music and you’ll find that much of it pays homage to The Psychedelic Furs. Led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler and his bass-wielding brother Tim, the Furs scored major hits with "Love My Way," "Pretty In Pink," "Heaven," "The Ghost In You," and “Heartbreak Beat;” altogether releasing seven studio albums, spawning several compilations, a boxed set and a live concert DVD.
Born out of the post-punk UK rock scene, the Furs quickly developed as one of the premier bands on US college and modern rock radio, scoring a multitude of #1 singles. With the advent of MTV in the early ’80s, the band was instantly launched to rock stardom; and when John Hughes’ approached them with an idea for his film built around the Furs’ song “Pretty In Pink,” the band’s legacy was cemented.
After a brief hiatus in the ’90s, and a side project called Love Spit Love, the Furs have regrouped at the dawn of this new millennium.
The Psychedelic Furs touring lineup remains: Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass), Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboards) and Paul Garisto (drums).
