The Creatures toured in 2004!! Here are the tour schedule and a direct quote from their website:
An Evening with... Siouxsie
Coming to a US City near you in September, and you're all still invited...
We're presenting these shows as "an evening with Siouxsie" as they'll be neither solely Creatures nor Banshees but an all encompassing two hour show which will comprise classics & rarities picked from the whole of the Siouxsie & the Banshees & the Creatures catalogues. We're also thrilled to announce that ex-Kodo drummer Leonard Eto will be joining us as our special guest for the debut performance of songs from Hai! The venues are mostly of an intimate size (more sensorial), there'll be no support so get there early as this will be one of those rare chances to see & hear la Sioux - up close! see you soon, xxBudgiexx

Fri 15 and Sat 16 Oct, London, SIOUXSIE : DREAMSHOW @ The Royal Festival Hall (see Budgie's diary entry or news)
These two shows will be replete with "the touring band augmented by the Orchestral players of the Millennia Ensemble. This means the arrangements will be fleshed out with strings, brass, tympani, tuned percussion, harp, with some songs being prepared especially for the occasion to be played entirely by the orchestra. This will be the realization of a dream for Siouxsie, in fact Two dreams, one being the Orchestra & the other to play with Kodo & as Leonard Eto is the virtual embodiment of Kodo, it will be the 'Dreamshow.'"
If you attended any of the shows on the tour, please email to me the set list(s),
photographs, or any details that you remember and I will post it all here! Thank you!
