Erasure Brings New Tour to House of Blues Orlando September 13, 2014


I first fell in love with the band Erasure in the 80s. I saw them open for Duran Duran, and was a fan ever since. That’s why I’m so happy the Erasure are coming to the House of Blues Orlando this month, touring in support of their new album.

Formed nearly 30 years ago, the award-winning songwriting duo of Vince Clarke and Andy Bell is back with their sixteenth album, The Violet Flame, in stores on Mute Records September 23, 2014.

Talking about the album, Bell said, “It’s all about hope, forgiveness, being given a new chance and the world being your oyster.” The theme of transformation and new beginnings is captured in the album’s title, a literal spiritual term meaning the transformation of negative energy into positive energy, freedom and forgiveness.

Erasure rose to the charts with songs like “A Little Respect,” “Sometimes,” “Victim Of Love,” “Blue Savannah,” “Star,” “Who Needs Love (Like That),” and my favorite, “Chains Of Love.” The duo has sold 25 million albums and had over 40 hit singles in their decades together.

Judging from their new single, “Elevation,” Erasure is back in fine form.

Catch Erasure at the House of Blues on September 13. Tickets for the show are $35, and are available online or at the House of Blues box office (where you won’t get hit with the Ticketmaster fee).

  1. I used to listen to some of their music. I didn’t even realize they were still around. I’ll have to check them out again
