James and The Psychedelic Furs team up for North American summer tour

Laid In Heaven: The two legendary British bands head out on a co-headlining run that plays Boston in July

Summer co-headlining tours have been all the rage for forever now, but perhaps the most exciting one lined up for 2019 will have us flocking indoors rather than the usual open-air amphitheaters and pavilions. That’s because two legendary British bands, James and The Psychedelic Furs, are teaming up for a North American co-headlining tour that hits Boston’s House of Blues on July 9.

“We are so happy to be returning to the USA and honored to be co-headlining with The Psychedelic Furs — a band we have loved since day one,” says James frontman Tim Booth, who we interviewed in September 2014 upon the release of their incredible record La Petite Mort. “To achieve maximum pleasure from our show please give a listen to our new CD Living in Extraordinary Times. We improvise and change our set on a nightly basis so expect the unexpected.”

Adds Psychedelic Furs vocalist Richard Butler: “We are excited to be back on tour this summer and are especially pleased to be joined by James, a personal favourite of mine, who have had my attention from the beginning. And… we may be playing some new Furs songs.”
