This was the zenith of Erasure. You knew this was the top of the mountain in their careers as Erasure. It had everything- music, costumes, lights, alien stage and the WOW FACTOR!

Don't forget, the 50,000 people at Velez Sarsfield Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1990.

I will put like this, this is the top of mountain moment in which all album were selling big, they just closed 101 global shows , massive chart success singles and albums globally. The may have had other success later but at this moment. Everything eas clicking perfect for Erasure around the globe. This concert sealed that moment until they moved on to other great moments as well.

Really this was the zenith?  I thought the Phantasmagorical Show was way better.  They didn't sell out stadiums, but I always viewed that tour as the very peak of Erasure favorability.  Not touring for I Say x 3 started the downfall as that album lent itself to a rather imaginative tour had they chosen to do so.  Andy's voice was also in top form for that album.  What could have been.....

It's my best personal memory of erasure the whole day the crowd the vast size of the stage it might not have the theatrics of the PE tour but the energy of andy that day was unbelievable,totally agree with you about not touring  I say x 3 I believe that was the reason in record sales dropping

This was live on Radio 1 as well, I had a great quality tape, although Radio 1 had not long gone to FM stereo which was pretty ropey.

I recall Gary Davies reporting on the ''very risque'' costumes.


Great days eh!


Vince also looked a bit like both Norman Cook & Adamski at his keyboard......


Live classic synth pop tracks you might have forgotten about.

It was truly a magical day and night. From the journey down on the coach to gettingĀ there and my first ever "massive" outdoor concert, seeing the crowd just grow and grow, the electric atmosphere, some great support from Was Not Was, the deafening, thunderous "Killer" by Adamski and then those wonderful scenes looking back over my shoulder as the skies fell dark to witness a glowing, florescent mass of bodies and the atmosphere crackling with pure excitement waiting for V&A to come onto stage, the wedding march that signalled the band coming out in a torrent of noise, the fireworks going off in "Star",the gut wrench when Andy told us all that he'd see us all again "in a few years" but i came away from that night in an absolute state of euphoria.
Honestly, it was absolutely brilliant. Without doubt, the greatest single Erasure event that I've had the privilege of attending. I'm getting goosebumps just remembering!
It seems unreal that all these years later that I'm still getting so,so much pleasure from this band. How very, very lucky we all are!

Don't forget those huge Roman candles during oh lamour and I also remember Vince whacking an extra note on his drum thingys on the middle 8 of stop with a huge smile on his face as if he was so happy the tour had finally finished

Thanks for posting your exciting, detail-filled memory! I feel like I was there! (My first live E experience was Phantasmagorical Entertainment on Halloween in NYC!)
