The Yummy Fur reuniting for fall North American tour w/ Bodega, Future Punx
The Yummy Fur, the ’90s-era cult Scottish indie rock band led by John McKeown (also of ’00s-era band 1990s) that included Franz Ferdinand’s Paul Thomson (and briefly, Alex Kapranos), reunited in 2010 to celebrate a new best-of compilation. Nearly 10 years later, The Yummy Fur are back again and will tour North America in late fall, with Future Punx opening on West Coast dates and Bodega opening on East Coast shows. Paul Thomson, who had to bow out of Franz Ferdinand’s tour after shattering bones in one of his fingers, will be part of the band, as will original OG YF member Dino Bardot (who also plays in the current lineup of FF).
The tour kicks off November 23 in Costa Mesa, CA and includes stops in L.A., San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Toronto, NYC, and Philadelphia. The NYC show with Bodega happens at Elsewhere Zone One on December 3. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, July 16 at 10 AM.
