The Psychedelic Furs have announced a nine-date UK tour which will take place throughout September.

It’s the band’s first live shows in the country for five years and is being billed as The Singles Tour.

The veteran post-punk band led by brothers Richard and Tim Butler will kick off the live shows in Glasgow on September 1 and wrap up with a set at Norwich’s UEA on the 11th of the month

A statement reads: “Since 1980, the Furs have released seven studio albums and a string of singles that have had great success both here and abroad.

“From the early days of Sister Europe and We Love You and continuing on through such iconic hit songs as Love My Way, Heaven, The Ghost In You, Heartbreak Beat and Pretty In Pink, The Psychedelic Furs have certainly left an indelible impression on just about anyone who grew up with them.

“The Singles Tour will be a chance to revisit highlights from their storied career. Now, as they return home, you’ll be able to take that journey with them… again.”

Support on the UK tour will be provided by the Lene Lovich Band.

Tickets are now on sale via Ticketmaster. Find a full list of live shows below.
