Erasure have today announced that in addition to their ‘Total Pop!’ outdoor shows in forests and woodland around England this summer they will also be taking the ‘Total Pop!’ tour to Dublin’s Olympia Theatre this June with an extra date added due to demand.

13 – Dublin Olympia Theatre
14 – Dublin Olympia Theatre

Tickets priced 39.50 euro including booking fee on sale now.

Formed 25 years ago, the award-winning duo of Vince Clarke and 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’, ‘Ship Of Fools’, ‘Blue Savannah’, ‘Star’, ‘Chains Of Love’, ‘The Circus’, ‘Who Needs Love (Like That)’, ‘Love To Hate You’, ‘Drama!’, ‘Always’ and ‘Breathe’, ensured a formidable presence on the singles charts complemented by five consecutive number one albums including ‘The Innocents’, ‘Wild!’, ‘Chorus’ and the beginning of the worldwide Abba revival ‘Abba-esque’.

From Lady Gaga to La Roux, the futurist, electronic sound Erasure championed is more relevant today than ever, and once again re-charging the global music scene. Clarke’s swirling synths and Bell’s angelic vocals offer both a contrast and complement to the ancient and bucolic forests in which they will perform. These shows will provide a magical environment for Erasure to deliver their fantastic, phantasmagoric entertainment.
