After more than four years away from recording and live performance, Erasure have announced the Total Pop! tour, a series of dates for summer 2011 playing their hits as part of Forestry Commission Live Music, where acts perform in spectacular woodland locations across the country. The Total Pop! tour will coincide with the release of Erasure’s brand new album, planned for release in summer 2011.
Commenting on the tour, Erasure’s Andy Bell said, “This wonderful opportunity to perform for the fans in such a unique backdrop feels like just the right way to jump back in to Erasure after a four year break. We’re excited to be playing in the woods and really hope it doesn’t rain.”
