Erasure concert slated for St. Petersburg's Mahaffey
Erasure was one of the biggest synthpop bands of the 1980s and the early '90s. Unlike most of their colleagues in the genre, they've thrived through decades of changing musical tastes and they've kept releasing quality albums to appreciative audiences.
Their latest is "The Violet Flame," which is slated to come out in September. They'll no doubt be playing selections from that album, along with songs such as “Oh L’amour,” “A Little Respect,” and “Victim Of Love” and
“Blue Savannah,” from their previous 15 studio albums, when they come to the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg on Sept. 14. Tickets go on sale June 6. They'll set you back $29, $39, $49 and $59. Call 727-893-7832 or go to themahaffey.com.
