Chris Cudby / Wednesday 4th May, 2022 3:00PM

Rescheduled three times due to Covid restrictions, Fur Patrol's PET 21st Birthday Tour is now firmly locked in for August 2022. Fronted by Julia Deans with core members Andrew Bain (bass) and drummer Simon Braxton (who is based in Melbourne), Fur Patrol can finally toast the vinyl LP reissue of their seminal debut album with a bevy of headline shows across Aotearoa. PET of course gave us the iconic, chart-topping 'Lydia' along with standout singles ‘Andrew’ and ‘Holy’ and previously hidden bonus track 'Bottles & Jars' (included on the new vinyl edition). Clearly keen as mustard to get back on stage together, don't miss Fur Patrol performing PET in its entirety at the following dates, with special guests MouseySoft Plastics and Death and The Maiden  all tickets remain valid and UTR ticket holders have been emailed direct with details (check your promotions and spam folders)...

"We're so looking forward to reloading and playing these songs live again, and just being in the same room together — it's been a minute!" — Julia Deans

Press release:

Fur Patrol confirm new August 2022 dates for their not-to-be missed PET 21st birthday tour!

Fur Patrol are finally taking their postponed 21st birthday tour on the road with new dates confirmed for August, 2022.

The iconic Kiwi rockers have locked in new dates for their seven-date tour of New Zealand in celebration of their landmark debut album, PET.

After the tour being rescheduled three times due to Covid restrictions, now Fur Patrol are finally getting the band back together and taking the record on the road.

Hailed as one of the most beloved bands to emerge from NZ’s rock/pop scene in the late 90s/early 2000s, Fur Patrol made their mark in 1998 with their EP, STARLIFTER. But it was PET and its hit songs like ‘Lydia’ (the most played song on NZ radio in 2000) that really propelled them into the limelight. The band followed PET up with COLLIDER in 2003, THE LONG DISTANCE RUNNER EP in 2007 and LOCAL KID in 2008.

Fur Patrol are chomping at the bit to get out and play. Don’t miss the chance to hear PET in its entirety, live, this August!
