The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall announces the return of British Modern Rockluminaries The Psychedelic Furs as they present “The Singles Tour” with special guest Bash & Pop, fronted by Tommy Stinson of The Replacements.
Led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler, and his bass-wielding brother Tim, The Psychedelic Furs scored major hits with “Love My Way”, “Pretty in Pink”, “Heaven”, “The Ghost in You”, and “Heartbreak Beat”. The Furs have released seven studio albums, spawning several compilations, a boxed set, and a live concert DVD. Born out of the post-punk UK rock scene, the Furs quickly developed as one of the premiere bands on US College and Modern Rock radio scoring a multitude of #1 singles. After a brief hiatus in the ‘90s, and a side project called Love Spit Love, the band regrouped at the dawn of the new millennium. The Psychedelic Furs touring lineup consists of Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass), Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboards), and Paul Garisto (drums).
When you listen to a Tommy Stinson record, under any moniker, you’re hearing rock ‘n’ roll done by a lifer, someone who has literally spent three-fourths of his time on earth touring and making music. If you subscribe to theory that it takes 10,000 hours to achieve mastery in any field, Tommy Stinson has done that, many times over. And, with “Anything Could Happen”, he doesn’t want to waste your time… no, not this time. “Anything Could Happen” is the second album by Bash & Pop, a very welcome and long-awaited follow-up to 1992’s “Friday Night is Killing Me”. The helmsman of the group is one Thomas Eugene Stinson, better known as Tommy of The Replacements – the seminal band of which he was co-founder, bassist, and sparkplug. Now coming off a fruitful 18-year stretch playing bass with stadium rockers Guns N’ Roses and a hugely successful 33-show Replacements reunion romp, Tommy is clearly jazzed to be doing his own thing again.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
