Erasure have announced a worldwide tour in to coincide with the release of their brand new album, ‘The Violet Flame’. The show will hit Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on November 9. Tickets on sale this Friday.
Recorded in New York and London and produced by Richard X, The Violet Flame follows 2013’s critically acclaimed Snow Globe, and is the band’s sixteenth studio album release. The first single from the 10-track album will be released in mid July.
Formed nearly 30 years ago, the award-winning songwriting duo of Vince Clarke and openly gay Andy Bell unleashed on the nation a succession of both influential and chart-topping pop anthems of the ‘80s, ‘90s through to today. Songs like A Little Respect, Sometimes, Victim Of Love and Ship Of Fools catapulted the band into fully-fledged pop royalty.
The Violet Flame Tour will start in Miami and take the iconic 80s duo from Vegas to the Big Apple and all over Europe, hitting Dublin in November.
The Violet Flame album is available on pre-order alongside exclusive Erasure bundles including single, deluxe and box set formats as well as a VIP ticket bundle which will feature the album, premium ticket and opportunities to meet the band.
Tickets for Erasure live at the Olympia are €39.50 incl. booking fee and go on sale this Friday at 9am from Ticketmaster.
