English alternative rockers The Psychedelic Furs have announced they will be bringing their Made Of Rain tour to Australia this year with a Perth date at Astor Theatre on Tuesday, November 15.

Formed amid the UK’s burgeoning punk scene in the late 70s, The Psychedelic Furs released their self-titled 1980 debut LP to chart success throughout Europe. In 1981, sophomore album Talk Talk Talk introduced them to American audiences, making its way onto the Billboard 200 with the now-legendary Brat Pack anthem Pretty in Pink.

With the release of third album Forever Now in 1982, the band made their first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 with single Love My Way. With director John Hughes’ use of their track Pretty in Pink as the basis for his poplar 1986 film of the same name, the band achieved the height of their international success, paving the way for their continued touring nearly 30 years later.

The Psychedelic Furs went on to release eight studio albums. Their 2020 record Made Of Rain was their first in 29 years and was co-produced with Richard Fortus of Guns n’ Roses.

The Psychedelic Furs’ Made Of Rain tour hits Astor Theatre on Tuesday, November 15, 2022. Tickets are on sale Friday, July 29 from premier.ticketek.com.au
