The Los Angeles dates will be preceded by IN YOUR ROOM, a 4-disc box set which includes remasters and 5.1 mixes of both Yaz classic albums Upstairs At Eric’s and You And Me Both, b-sides and remixes plus a DVD featuring a new short film containing exclusive new interviews with Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet and the promo videos for “Don’t Go,” “The Other Side Of Love,” “Nobody’s Diary,”” “Situation (1990)” and “Only You (1999).” A limited edition vinyl 12” with new dance mixes will also be released to promote the set.
The joyous, unlikely coming together of Vince Clarke, who had just left Depeche Mode, and Alison Moyet lasted for only two albums, saw them performing only 24 concerts worldwide but left an indelible mark on pop. Yaz 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 have their own successful careers, Vince with Erasure and Alison as a solo performer, both releasing critically acclaimed albums in 2007: Erasure with Light At The End Of The World and Alison Moyet with The Turn. “the Reconnected Tour” will also see Yaz perform material from You And Me Both for the very first time as well as alternative classics such as “Situation,” “Nobody’s Diary,” “Don’t Go” and “Only You.”
