Erasure is set to perform at Thetford Forest this coming summer.
Their Friday June 10 gig is the first of a series the band is playing as part of the Forestry Commission’s live music concerts.
They are the second line up announced for the forest’s 2011 concerts. Simple Minds will play the day after on Saturday June 11.
Erasure returns to recording and live music after a four year absence and on Monday released their new album A Little Respect - HMI Redux.
Singer Andy Bell said: “This wonderful opportunity to perform for the fans in such a unique backdrop feels like just the right way to jump back in to Erasure after a four year break. We’re excited to be playing in the woods and really hope it doesn’t rain.”
Vince Clarke and Andy Bell created many well known anthems in the 80s and 90s with their synthesized electronic sound including A Little and I Love to Hate You.
Tickets cost £34.50 (subject to booking fee) and go on sale at 9am this Friday December 10 from the Forestry Commission. Box office number is 03000 680400, or buy online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music
