The Psychedelic Furs Tickets for Sale

Despite the band's name, the Beatlesque touches that brought the Psychedelic Furs great acclaim came only after they'd established their initial style. Theirs was a dark, swirling sound that mixed Bowie-ish art-rock and post-punk guitars with Richard Butler's Dylan-inspired lyrics and three-packs-a-day voice.

The Psychedelic Furs are an influential British post-punk band founded in the 1970s. Punk had dismissed psychedelic rock and was adamantly opposed to it. The Furs embraced punk's more liberating elements, but discarded such limitations and also embraced psychedelic rock. The outcome was a combination of droning guitars and sax, rhythm section in the deep end of the pool, and raspy biting vocals with a slightly more pop feel than punk, becoming progressively more pop and less punk with successive albums until 1989's Book of Days' return to the earlier style.

Behind the production of Steve Lillywhite, famous for its big drum sound, the Furs broke into the U.S. market with the 1981 release Talk Talk Talk which featured "Pretty in Pink," which became a hit years later when it served as inspiration for the John Hughes film of the same name. With the release of "Love My Way" from 1982's Forever Now and the 1984 release of Mirror Moves, which featured the songs "The Ghost in You" and "Heaven" the band became somewhat of a staple on early 1980s college and progressive rock radio stations. They also had a minor hit with "Heartbreak Beat" (which peaked at #26) from the 1987 release Midnight to Midnight.

After spending the last half of the 1990s apart they reformed in 2000. Many personnel changes took place throughout the years, but the Butler brothers and John Ashton have been constants.
