Dexys announce first North American tour dates in 40 years

Dexys – formerly known as Dexys Midnight Runners – have announced details of their first North American tour in 40 years.

The band, who returned this week with new album ‘The Feminine Divine’, will hit the road later this year.

After a UK tour that takes place in September, the band will then head to Europe in October before hitting the US on October 26 for a gig in Los Angeles.


The 14-date tour will then take them through until November 15 when the tour will wrap up with a show in Glenside, Pennsylvania.

Back in November, Dexys joined forces with Primal Scream to share a track in support of railway workers.

The song, ‘Enough Is Enough’ was produced in collaboration with the Rail, Maritime and Transport union to campaign against the cost of living crisis. “It is clear to millions that something is very wrong when millionaires get ever richer while workers are told to accept poverty,” said Rowland.

“As we say in the song, the media sets out to confuse people with lies and divide us with side issues like Brexit and culture wars while all we are really getting is endless austerity and cuts. We are saying enough is enough.”
