Psychedelic Furs expand Talk Talk Talk tour; Tampa Bay date added



Psychedelic Furs/Richard ButlerThe Psychedelic Furs have just expanded their 30th anniversary Talk Talk Talk summer tour of the U.S., adding eight more dates -- including a stop here in Tampa Bay at Clearwater's Capitol Theatre on July 2. (Tickets go on sale April 1; $49.50 to $59.50)

According to the always-great Slicing Up Eyeballs website, brothers Richard and Tim Butler -- both still as charismatic as ever -- are playing their 1981 album in its entirety. (It includes the classics Pretty in Pink and Dumb Waiters, for those who haven't heard it in a while.)

If you haven't seen the Furs lately (or ever), I cannot emphasis this enough: Go see them ... now ... on this tour. I caught their act two years ago in Tampa, and it was easily my favorite show of the year. Seeing them in an intimate venue like the Capitol makes this event even more epic.
