Devo Use the F Word to Announce a Tour

Devo are the latest act to use the F word … ‘Farewell’. Devo have announced a single date on what has been billed a Farewell Tour.

Devo will perform at Desert Daze in California sometime over the weekend of 11 to 13 October. Desert Daze have announced their line-up for the weekend but not the specific date so far. Under Devo it says ‘Farewell Tour’.

Devo formed in Akron, Ohio in 1973. The first album ‘Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!’ was released in 1978. While it only peaked at no 78 in the USA, New Zealand got it right away. The album reached no 7 there.

Australia has given Devo its two highest chart positions ever. The third album ‘Freedom of Choice’ (1980) reached no 5 in Australia, no 22 in the USA, and ‘New Traditionalists’ (1981) reached no 3 in Australia, no 23 in the USA.

Devo have only performed six times since 2015. Their last tour, the Hardcore Devo Tour, finished in California on 30 July 2019. Devo’s last Australian show was on 12 December 2012 in Wollongong.
