Synth-pop duo Erasure to perform at the Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort on Friday, September 30, 2011, at 9 p.m. This is the first tour in more than five years for Erasure.

Formed in 1985 by Vince Clarke, formerly of Depeche Mode fame, and vocalist Andy Bell, Erasure is one of the most successful and long running acts in British pop. The band released their first album, Wonderland, in 1986 and the record’s follow up, Sometimes, shortly after, which launched a string of successful singles.

Erasure hit fame in the U.S. in 1988 with the single “Chains of Love” from the album The Innocents and began to grow their dedicated fan base outside of their native Britain. The single, “A Little Respect,” was also a hit with American fans and reached #14 on the charts. More studio releases followed as the band’s cult following continued to grow. In 1992, Erasure released Pop! The First 20 Hits, a compilation of the band’s top singles. In 1994, I Say I Say I Say was released marking the group’s fifth studio album. I Say I Say I Say featured the single “Always,” which was the first hit for Erasure in the U.S. since their breakout in 1988. They followed up with a self-titled release in 1995 and the album Cowboy in 1997.

Additional releases including, live albums, cover albums and others followed, and in 2009 they released Total Pop! The First 40 Hits, which contained not just their hits, but a remix of hit single “Always” by producer Jeremy Wheatley. This fall, Erasure will release their newest studio album, Tomorrow’s World.
