Sean Healy Stays Hot with Psychedelic Furs

By  | 

Sean Healy Presents (SHP), in a joint venture with Johnny Depp’s Viper Room, continued its long-standing record of booking hard to get A-list musical talent with a secret live performance from the Psychedelic Furs. Covering the event was Los Angeles’ KROQ FM, among others. This event was an important benchmark for SHP as it positions itself for the number one talent booker and venue promoter slot on the West Coast’s live entertainment scene. SHP books talent and promotes for over 30 venues, both club and theatre, in California and Seattle with more venues being added in 2004. They also give local artist the opportunity to be part of A-list concerts by earning opening slots for national acts. A partial list of recent SHP concert events includes: George Clinton, E-40, Coolio, Too Short, and Chingy, with Slick Rick’s first Los Angeles performance since being relieved of his deportation worries coming January 21st, 2004 at Hollywood’s Key Club.

After a decade apart and having had a go at other musical projects, The Psychedelic Furs (well the main three anyway: Ashton, Butler and Butler) decided they’ve always had the most fun as musicians when they rocked together. So once again new Furs music took the breath away with Beautiful chaos as the first release by the newly reformed Furs and corresponded with a DVD release, Psychedelic Furs Live at the House of Blues. Both the DVD and the live album are taken from the Furs’ reunion tour of 2000 and 2001. The new line up added Love Spit Love’s Richard Fortus on second guitar/synthesizer and The The alum Earl Harvin on drums. The band sounds great and the audience is obviously happy the Furs came back around.
