Legendary alternative rock band The Psychedelic Furs return to the Capitol Theatre. Led by front man and songwriter Richard Butler, 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 a multitude of #1 singles including “Love My Way,” “Heaven,” “The Ghost in You,”, “Pretty in Pink”, and “Heartbreak Beat”, in all releasing seven studio albums and 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. With the advent of MTV in the early 80s, the band took off into the stratosphere, and when producer John Hughes’ approached the band with his film built around the Furs’ song “Pretty in Pink”, the band’s legacy was cemented!
