Faust On Tour, Chicago Date Announced



Läuft…Heist das Es
Läuft Oder Es Kommt Bald…Läuft… and all that

By Fred Mills


Krautrock godfather Faust are in the middle of a rare
European and UK tour that will dip over to Japan — and then land on these
shores for a Sept. 10 performance in Chicago (as part of The Wire‘s
Adventures in Modern Music Festival).  Band lineups and support will be in “morph” mode, according to the Faust Pages website:


Faust (Zappi Diermaier, Jean-Hervé Peron, James Johnston,
James Hodson and special guests) will play three concerts in Japan on
September 6-9th. They will play in Istanbul on
October 14th in a unique concert featuring Geraldine Swayne, and will also
visit the UK in June (London on the 18th, Manchester
on the 19th and Cork
on the 21st) with the same line-up plus more very special guests. Faust (Zappi
Diermaier, Jean-Hervé Peron, Wwe Bastiansen and guests) will play the Swomp Festival, Hanover, Germany on May 7th and in Dublin at the Electric Picnic Festival on
August 30th (Zappi Diermaier, Jean-Hervé Peron, James Johnston, Geraldine
Swayne and very special guests.)
