Overview

Led by vocal and lyrical genius Richard Butler with his brother Tim on bass, The Psychedelic Furs released seven critically acclaimed studio albums:  ‘The Psychedelic Furs' (1980), ‘Talk Talk Talk’ (1981), ‘Forever Now’ (1982), ‘Mirror Moves’ (1984), Midnight To Midnight’ (1987), ‘Book Of Days’ (1989) and ‘World Outside’ (1991). They released many classic singles throughout the ’80s and into the '90s, including: ‘Sister Europe,’ ‘Love My Way,’ ‘The Ghost In You,’ ’ Pretty In Pink,’ ‘Heaven,’ ‘Heartbreak Beat,’ ’All That Money Wants’ and ‘Until She Comes.’

The band completed a tour of North America in 2019 and played acclaimed shows at The Hollywood Bowl, All Points East, Hyde Park and Benicàssim, and a celebrated handful of UK shows including headlining the prestigious Meltdown at the Royal Festival Hall at Robert Smith of The Cure’s request. The band played a sold-out tour of the UK and Europe which culminated in a triumphant show at the Roundhouse in London.

The last few years has seen the band’s legend growing, highlighted by the fact they have scored more than150 million streams of their songs worldwide. Their influence since arriving on the post-punk scorched-earth landscape four decades ago has reverberated and resonated from everyone from The Killers to REM to Foo Fighters to Bob Dylan who has sung their praises.

Many moons after Pretty In Pink (sort of) inspired that John Hughes movie, Love My Way was featured in the Oscar-winning film Call Me By Your Name and The Ghost In You in sci-fi smash Stranger Things, showing that The Psychedelic Furs are sounding stronger than ever. As anyone who’s seen the band lately knows, Butler remains one of the most watchable frontmen in the game.

Supported By: Royston Langdon
Royston Langdon has been a performer for as long as he can remember. Most noted for his time as the lead singer and principal songwriter in Spacehog, formed in the fall of 1995, Langdon and his bandmates released the commercially and critically acclaimed debut album Resident Alien, which spawned the hit single "In the Meantime."

Three more albums followed over the next decades. Since then, Langdon has embarked on a non-stop solo career which most recently has seen the release of his album “Everything’s Dandy” under the pseudonym LEEDS, named after his hometown in England. Currently, he is busy at work recording new songs for an EP coming later this year.
