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......

It was truly a magical day and night. From the journey down on the coach to getting 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

I completely and wholeheartedly agree!
It was absolutely, utterly fantastic.

The most unreal concert with an atmosphere of pure electricity on the night.
Remember the whole massive crowd bathed in fluorescent colour due to the glow sticks!?
Just a truly magnificent day and night!
Has anyone on the forum got a time machine that I can borrow please?

Looking back at this period, I do wonder if some younger TV/radio presenters fully understand the historic popularity of Erasure? They were HUGE 1987-1992, selling out to massive audiences, easily!

Recorded it off Radio 1. Getting FM Stereo wasn't so reliable back then, so never bothered


Lasted me years that tape.

Carefree days

If this concert were to take place in 2017. It would be 100 pounds vs 15 pounds in 1990

To be fair, I would definitely pay that just to witness that incredible, spinetingling event again!
I'm so happy I managed to grab the "non official" DVD of the concert a few years ago. It's lovely to be able to enjoy it again.

You would've thought that a gig of that size and spectacle would've been filmed properly for a release on top of the Docklands gig,but as you mention thank God for the bootleg DVD.

It really is a shame that for people who couldn't attend the gig, there is nothing to show the whole scale of the event. The bootleg DVD unfortunately only shows the stage, nothing to get an impression how big the whole thing was.
Over the years Mute have over and over fucked up live recordings. Even the Phantasmagorical Entertainment release is lacking the colours are all a bit off (just look at Star) it is also not the best picture quality that was available at the time and some bootlegs represented better what it sounded like live.

I think if I'm not mistaken, the Wild Bootleg DVD  was the work of Darren Wood

Yes Darren Wood acquired the footage and made the dvd - I supplied him my cuttings from the press reviews, and some EIS photos which he included in on the disc and he credited me with the supply

seems a long time ago

^Thanks for the link. I recall Gary Davies on Radio 1 saying he could see fans as far as the ''I can see''...now I know what he means.

Depending on the resolution, it's something I could buy. But doing a simple purchase on that page requires a lot more details than I'm prepared to give.

Whatever happened to the simple: Select - Card details/address - Delivery..oh so simple......

But now, why the hell do Facebook have to be involved now? Those not on FB can't buy it?

It was a great weekend, 4 teenagers from Edinburgh, so nieve, not a clue where the venue was, where would stay afterwards, but from getting dumped of the bus at the M1 junction to
walking miles for hours, till we met other people going, so followed them. Fell in love with the beautiful voice of BRM, met a giant snail called ernie and kipped down on the train station floor afterwards to get rudely awakened by a gang of lads wanting to have our trainers???? walk for miles again to get the bus back to Edinburgh, as I said what a great weekend

Getty images wants to make as much as they can so they ask more questions so they can base the price on what it will be used for. I think this prevents people from not paying them.
