Event Details

Fur Patrols 20th Anniversary tour of much loved album PET

Due to COVID and suspended travel between New Zealand and Australia, Fur Patrol have postponed the PET 21st Anniversary tour until 2022.
 
 "In light of the current Covid-flavoured situation both here and across the Tasman, we have made the difficult call to further postpone our tour until March 2022,” says Fur Patrol frontwoman, Julia Deans.
 
 “We're really bummed that we won't get to play together and for you this year, but when it does finally happen it is going to be A-fucking-MAZING!"

With core Fur Patrol band member, drummer Simon Braxton, living in Melbourne and currently unable to travel to New Zealand until the travel “bubble” is back in place; the band have postponed the tour by another few months. The PET 21st birthday tour was originally scheduled for September then postponed to November, now to the end of February.
 
 With the postponement comes positive news with a date now scheduled for Nelson.

“We are so excited about these shows,” continues Julia. “It will be worth the wait!”


With the constantly moving goalposts COVID brings, we know it’s an unsettling time for everyone. We will get there! 


As a thank you for your enduring patience & support around these shows, we'd like to give you this little placeholder/peace offering of two rare outtakes from the Pet recordings – the previously unreleased mood-booster “These Days”, and an acoustic version of “Lydia”.

Hopefully these will bring some light & help fill the gap until we see you in Feb-Mar 2022!
 
 Ngā mihi,


Julia, Andrew & Simon (aka Fur Patrol) 


Fur Patrol’s “Pet” 21st Birthday Tour

In April this year Fur Patrol released their somewhat-delayed (thanks Covid) 20th Anniversary vinyl reissue of their much-loved debut album Pet. In September they will celebrate the album's 21st birthday with a series of live shows, playing the album in its entirety. 

Raised on a solid diet of live performances and released in September 2000, Pet spawned five singles including “Andrew”, “Holy”, and the chart-topping “Lydia”. Fur Patrol first came together in 1996 and gained a loyal following for their high energy shows & unerringly catchy songs.  Fiery frontwoman Julia Deans will be joined by bandmates Simon Braxton (drums) and Andrew Bain (bass), though original guitarist Steve Wells will be sorely missed due to his location in Paris (thanks again, Covid).

Fur Patrol are chomping at the bit to get out and play. Don’t miss the chance to hear this iconic album live!
