After an Entirely Sold Out Spring 2023 Tour, the Platinum-Selling Band Continues the 40th Anniversary Celebration of Their Debut Album by Tapping Such Critically-Acclaimed Opening Artists as Elizabeth Moen, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, and Kevin Hearn 

Alt Rockers Violent Femmes have unveiled a veritable “who’s who” list of support acts as they prepare to venture out on their highly-anticipated Fall 2023 Tour. Ranging from singer-songwriters Elizabeth Moen, Kevin Hearn, and Rick Berlin, to Appalachian folk punk artist Black Guy Fawkes, genre-defying hard rock dance duo Quintron and Miss Pussycat, and pioneering soul-shoegaze-alternative rockers The Veldt, this menagerie of talent will perfectly accentuate the Femmes performance as they play their debut record from cover to cover as part of its 40th anniversary. 

The Fall 2023 Tour, which kicks off October 3 in Milwaukee, WI, is a continuation of the Platinum-selling band’s uber successful Spring 2023 Tour, which sold out entirely. Tickets are available now at
