In 1996 Erasure found themselves on tour again for the first time
since the 1992 tour and this was to promote the build-up for their 1997
tour 'Cowboy Concerts (which unfortunately doesn't look likely to be
released on DVD or video).
It's a very traditional concert with Vince's synths built into a snazzy
stage complete with scrolling text and special lights.
The video is a roller-coaster through the band's greatest hits to date and
includes all the favourites such as Sometimes, A Little Respect, Stop,
Chains Of Love and Love To Hate You.
There are few outfit changes compared to the last tour; four for Andy
(swan sweater and leather pants, a dress and a matching sweater and
trousers which is changed to a fur coat for the finale) and Vince sticks
with his customary suit changing into a tracksuit for the last few songs.
This is the last Erasure VHS to be released and still commercially
available from Mute Bank.
