Devo Use the F Word to Announce a Tour

by Paul Cashmere on August 7, 2019

in News

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.

At one point Jackson Browne commented how he “doesn’t think of himself as 75 and doesn’t think of his beard as grey” but that is what a lifetime of success will do to you. For many people in the room (including myself) who started the Jackson Browne journey with his first album in 1972, this show delivered a deep dive across the entire career.
