Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road presents The Psychedelic Furs at the Palladium in St. Petersburg on Thursday, October 20 at 8 pm. If you were to dissect the alternative rock dominating today’s music, you’ll find that much of it pays homage to The Psychedelic Furs. Led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler and his bass-wielding brother Tim, the Furs won over fans and critics alike by combining poetic lyrics, innovative rhythms and melodies driven by an aggressive, punk desperation. Through it all, the band scored major hits with Love My Way, Pretty In Pink, Heaven, The Ghost In You and Heartbreak Beat. In all, releasing seven studio albums and spawning several compilations, a boxed set and a live concert DVD. The band continues to tour around the world with a lineup that has remained the same for over 35 years.
