The outing marks Fischerspooner’s first U.S. tour and will see the twosome, along with their cadre of dancers, vocalists and other “merry pranksters,” visiting various theatres in major cities.

Rumor has it the reason they rarely play live is because their show is such an extravagant production, complete with huge lighting and video rigs, elaborate costumes, dancers, glitter storms and pyro. And then there’s the chocolate sauce. Think Elton John’s 50th birthday bash done electro-trash style.

Prior to the tour, filmmaker and Fischerspooner troupe member Karen Fischer will screen her documentary about the band at the South By Southwest festival March 14 at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin. The film is a behind-the-scenes look at the band, who will be on hand for a Q&A session following the screening.

Those who can’t make the viewing can find the documentary, along with the group’s self-produced film work, music videos, live footage and other goodies on a full-length DVD that accompanies the #1 album.

Tickets for the tour go on sale March 1, but special advance tickets can be ordered at
