It follows on from the completion of a sold out tour across the UK and, due to overwhelming demand, new UK dates for 2022 have been added, including an arena date at P&J Live.

It will be the only Scottish date on the duo's UK tour and will see them take to the stage in the Granite City on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.

The chart-topping duo have just finished a run of sold out UK dates that included The O2 in London, and these newly announced dates follow their recently rescheduled European shows.

Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment, Exhibitions and Marketing at P&J Live, said: “For many, Erasure provided the soundtrack to the 80s and beyond, with many songs, old and new, becoming stand-out hits that you just can’t help but sing along to.

"I know the band has a huge fanbase up here in the north-east of Scotland who will be just as excited as we are to welcome the iconic duo to the stage in 2022.”

The band recently shared a video for brand new track Time (Hearts Full of Love), which features on a newly released five-track EP. Ne:EP – out on CD, limited edition purple cassette and digitally – is a companion piece to their latest album, The Neon, with four new tracks sitting alongside ‘Secrets’, which originally appeared on The Neon Remixed.

The duo recently released their eighteenth studio album, The Neon, which went into the UK Official Albums Chart at number four, their highest chart position since I Say I Say I Say, which in turn gets a deluxe two-CD expanded hardback book release on November 5.
