ERASURE 'TOTAL POP! FOREST TOUR Thank you so much to everyone who has already bought tickets to see one (or more!) of Erasure's outdoor shows in English woodlands next year, the promoter of the shows described the presale take-up of tickets as 'excellent', one of the best they've seen since they started promoting this shows, so on behalf of the band thank you for that show of support. Tickets are now on general sale if you still want some (or if you want to encourage your friends to join you!). If anyone has any questions about that tour, or about Erasure's tour plans generally for next year then there is a FAQ on the live page on the website that is designed to answer your questions.
