Bad Lieutenant, the alternative rock band formed by New Order’s Bernard Sumner and Phil Cunningham, is finally heading to America for their first overseas tour. After canceling last year’s shows, which included opening spots for the Pixies, they’ll be making four appearances in the U.S. in support of last October’s debut, Never Cry Another Tear.
After rounding out some dates in Europe, Sumner and friends will select North American markets, which include San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. However, all the dates will fit around the group’s appearance at Coachella on April 17th.
“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.”
Tickets for the New York date go on sale February 12th, Chicago tickets go on sale the 13th, and San Francisco tickets go on sale the 14th.
