The Psychedelic Furs

31st Street Park

Va. Beach, VA

From the original Facebook Event:

Join us during 46th Annual Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend for a FREE CONCERT featuring The Psychedelic Furs! The concert will take place Saturday, September 28th at 9:00pm in 31st Street Park.

If you sit and talk to many of the alternative rock artists dominating today’s music, you’ll find that many of them pay homage to the The Psychedelic Furs. 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 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.
