It’s been eight years since iconic synth pop duo Erasure last performed in Nashville, and over 25 years since their first (and only other) Music City outing, with Duran Duran. So, if you were on the fence about their performance next week, Oct. 8, at War Memorial Auditorium, keep that in mind; it could be a decade or more until they return. You can still buy tickets to the show right here, but, because we’re such huge fans of the seminal group, we wanted to give you a least minute chance to win a pair! Read on for details!
Formed in 1985 following a string of post-Depeche Mode Vince Clarke projects with varying degrees of success, Clarke met Andy Bell and the rest is history. Though America never caught onto Erasure quite to the same degree as their native UK, as well as greater Europe and South America, they experienced some breakthrough success stateside in the ’80s, and, in their uninterrupted 30 year run, the duo have achieved dozens of chart topping hits. Generally straddling the lines between new wave, synth pop, and electronic rock, Erasure have, at times, ventured into more experimental realms, but have always remained pioneers for the poppier side of the genre. Their brand new record, The Violent Flame, might be the group’s strongest in years, and, amidst a modern mainstream landscape packed with electronic music, still stands as proof that Erasure have a quality no one else can touch.
