Live @ Benaroya Hall: The Psychedelic Furs and The Church

Live at Benaroya Hall >

If you dissect today’s alternative rock music, you’ll find that much of it pays homage to a single iconic ‘80s rock group: The Psychedelic Furs. Born out of London’s post-punk rock scene, the Furs quickly gained popularity with the advent of MTV. When director John Hughes approached the band with a film idea built around the Furs’ song, “Pretty in Pink,” the band’s legacy was cemented. The Psychedelic Furs touring lineup is still led by brothers Richard Butler (vocals) and Tim Butler (bass), and includes Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboard) and Paul Garisto (drums).

Psychedelic rock band The Church joins the Furs for this summer tour, fresh off their 25th studio release, Further/Deeper, and 2015 performances at SXSW. Also founded in the ‘80s, this beguiling Australian band still retains the shimmering, atmospheric sound that first catapulted them into the spotlight on hits like "Under the Milky Way" and "Metropolis."

JUST ADDED! The Church VIP Meet & Greet packages are now available. These VIP packages include access to The Church's pre-show soundcheck, meet & greet and personal photograph with The Church, autographed tour lithograph and more. Follow "Buy Tickets" link for more details.
