British modern rock luminaries The Psychedelic Furs will return to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Tuesday, April 23.
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.” The Furs released 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 premiere bands on U.S. College and Modern Rock radio scoring a multitude of No. 1 singles. With the advent of MTV in the early 1980s, the band took off into the stratosphere and when John Hughes approached the band with his film built around the Furs’ song “Pretty in Pink,” the band’s legacy was cemented. After a brief hiatus in the 1990s, and a side project called “Love Spit Love,” the band regrouped at the dawn of the new millennium.
The Psychedelic Furs touring lineup consists of Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass), Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboards) and Paul Garisto (drums).
