Yazoo reunite for the first time in nearly 30 years

and announce UK wide tour

news: Friday 21st March 2008

Yazoo (Vince Clarke & Alison Moyet) have announced that they will reunite for the first time in nearly 30 years for the 'Reconnected Tour' and will play all over the UK in June.

Vince Clarke, who had just left Depeche Mode, and Alison Moyet formed Yazoo which only lasted for 2 albums and saw them performing only 24 concerts worldwide. Despite their short time together they left an indelible mark on pop.

Yazoo released 'Upstairs At Eric's' in July 1982 then parted company just 12 months later on release of the second album 'You And Me Both', which reached Number 1 in the UK.

Vince and Alison have since gone on to continue their careers, Vince with Erasure and Alison Moyet as a solo performer. The tour is preceded in May by the release of 'In Your Room', a 4-disc box set including the band's two albums, B-Sides and a DVD featuring a short film containing exclusive new interviews with Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet.

The Reconnected Tour will see Yazoo perform material from 'You and Me Both' for the very first time as well as pop classics 'Only You and 'Don't Go'.

Wed 04 Jun SECC, Glasgow
Thu 05 Jun City Hall, Newcastle
