"Spare Us The Cutter" - Echo And The Bunnymen Return To Tour The U.S.

Just got a press release today that Echo and the Bunnymen will be touring North American on their "Crocodiles & Heaven Up Here" tour. If you know their work, then you know that these are their first two albums. They will be playing them in their entirety. Personally, I think their third and fourth albums, Porcupine and Ocean Rain, better. Maybe they will return to do those. Still, they were one of the cooler UK bands from the '80s and definitely underrated. Ian McCullough is a charismatic singer and Will Sargent a powerful guitarist. You can find out more at

Dates for Crocodiles & Heaven Up Here Tour

British post-punk legends Echo & The Bunnymen have announced the North American leg of their acclaimed Crocodiles & Heaven Up Here tour. The band will be playing those two legendary albums in their entirety. The UK leg of the tour saw the band play to rapturous sold out audiences. See a clip of them playing the Crocodiles track “Stars and Stars” at Liverpool’s Olympia here , please repost.

Echo & The Bunnymen toured North America last year in support of their acclaimed album The Fountain. They kicked off the run of dates with a thunderous performance at Coachella and stormed their way from coast to coast. Don’t miss the chance to see this legendary band perform two of their classic albums live!
