Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment, Exhibitions & Marketing at P&J Live, says: “For many, Erasure provided the soundtrack to the 80s and beyond, with many songs, old and new, becoming stand-out hits that you just can’t help but sing along to. I know the band has a huge fanbase up here in the North East of Scotland who will be just as excited as we are to welcome the iconic duo to the stage in 2022.”
The band recently shared a video for brand new track ‘Time (Hearts Full of Love)’, which features on a newly released 5-track EP. Ne:EP - out on CD, limited edition purple cassette and digitally - is a companion piece to their latest album, The Neon, with 4 new tracks sitting alongside ‘Secrets’ - which originally appeared on The Neon Remixed.
The duo recently released their eighteenth studio album, The Neon, which went into the UK Official Albums Chart at #4, their highest chart position since I Say I Say I Say, which in turn gets a deluxe 2CD expanded hardback book release on 5 November 2021.
