Bad Lieutenant's Bernard Sumner Announces Tour Dates
These dates will mark Bad Lieutenant's U.S. concert debut and are in support of the band's first album, Never Cry Another Tear, which was released last October through Original Signal Recordings.
"As promised," said Bad Lieutenant's Bernard Sumner, "we are coming to the U.S. to play our re-scheduled dates in Chicago and New York with the addition of the Coachella Festival and a concert in San Francisco. We are really looking forward to playing our songs live for our fans in the U.S. It's been some quite time since I have played in America, and we are all very excited about the prospect."
The core members of Bad Lieutenant - Sumner, Cunningham, and Evans - will be joined on these dates by former Joy Division/New Order drummer Stephen Morris (who also played on the new album) and bassist Tom Chapman. According to Sumner, "The bulk of the set will be Bad Lieutenant songs, but we'll also play some songs from my past, some New Order songs, some Joy Division, and a few other surprises."
Tickets for the San Francisco, Chicago and New York dates go on sale this week, (see itinerary below for details) and can be purchased at the respective venue's box office and at ticketmaster.com
