Violent Femmes 2023 Tour Announcement – 40th Anniversary Tour Schedule
Violent Femmes is gearing up for its 40th-anniversary tour, celebrating the self-titled debut that many called the “soundtrack to puberty!” The veteran folk-punk heroes will begin on May 5th in Ventura, CA, making stops in Los Angeles, CA, Dallas, TX, Tulsa, OK, and more before concluding on the 21st in Denver, CO.
Any teenager in the 1980s will remember the Violent Femmes album, featuring standout tracks like “Blister in the Sun,” “Add It Up,” and “Confessions.” Its legacy has lived on throughout the decades, being included in endless “Best Albums of the 1980s” lists and even the book called 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die! These accolades are all well-deserved, and such a flawless record deserves the proper Violent Femmes tour in its honor. The group will be playing this record from front to back in spring 2023, and it’s going to be a magically nostalgic experience for all involved.
That being said, even those who weren’t around in the 1980s can resonate with Violent Femmes and its accompanying anniversary tour. The themes of love, intimacy, and being misunderstood have stood the test of time, serving up one of the best alternative rock-folk albums in years and reminding all types of misfits that they’re never alone. This relatability has continued for many more Violent Femmes albums, including their tenth and latest, 2019’s Hotel Last Resort. However, the group’s debut will always have a special place in our hearts and playlists, and they’re giving the project all kinds of love on the 40th Anniversary tour.
Whether you’ve been around for decades or just got into Violent Femmes a couple of years back, you’ll have a blast at this anniversary tour. It’s the chance to hear all the classics in an intimate setting, giving you a front-row seat to 1980s nostalgia at its finest. Get your tickets now to see Violent Femmes in the following cities!
