The Jesus and Mary Chain Announce “Psychocandy” 30th Anniversary Tour
(1/29/15) Best known as being the perhaps the first rock group of the 1980s to flawlessly incorporate fuzz and feedback with “Wall Of Sound” pop sensibilities, The Jesus and Mary Chain will embark on a UK and North American 2015 tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of their debut “Psychocandy”.
Will not achieving much chart success in the states, the band has clearly influenced the likes of Dinosaur Jr, The Pixies, and My Bloody Valentine and are considered the fore fathers of the shoegaze movement in the late 1980's and early-to-mid 1990's.
The band co-founded by William and Jim Reid also features Mark Crozer, now known in the wrestling world as the creator of Bray Wyatt's theme “Broken Out In Love”. The group's North American portion of the tour includes 9 cities from May 1st through 16th and the band will play the full “Psychocandy” album including “Just Like Honey”, “Never Understand” and “You Trip Me Up”. Select tracks from the band's catalog such as “Some Candy Talking” are also expected to be performed.
Looking at the limited secondary market currently available, the cheapest date comes May 11th at the Ogden Theater with a $90 average asking price. Chicago's Riviera Theatre is priciest at $183. Prices are expected to come down as more tickets hit the market following the official on-sale this Friday at 10am PST.
