Echo and the Bunnymen, Violent Femmes team up for 2nd U.S. summer co-headlining tour
England’s Post-punk legends and reunited American alt-rockers scheduled for an 11-date stint throughout July
Echo and the Bunnymen, Violent Femmes to tour together again this summer
2017 witnessed post-punk icons Echo and the Bunnymen alongside with reunited American alt-rockers Violent Femmes. They ventured out on a 16-show North American co-headlining tour. Well, ‘happy days again’. The two massive alternative rock legends enjoyed it so much that they are taking to the roads together again this summer.
According to a recent press statement, the 11-date (so far) tour stint will see Echo and the Bunnymen, Violent Femmes performing in cities like
San Antonio, Houston, Nashville, Lake Buena Vista, and Washington, DC. They will rotate in being the headliner, too.
With again, last year’s tour playing 16 shows you can only hope that more dates will be eventually included in this year’s tour.
