Yazoo (Yaz) Goes On Tour in US for Some Unfinished Business

I’ve always been a huge fan of Vince Clarke’s synth and compositional work with Depeche Mode, Yazoo, and Erasure. I was Googling around and discoverd that Yazoo (known as Yaz in the US) are touring.

Many of these songs were never played out live. This is more like unfinished business for Vince Clarke & Alison Moyet. As you can see from the live performance video above, they have a contemporary light show and Vince Clarke is laptop based and running Logic and various soft-synths.

Native Instruments recently posted an interview with Vince Clarke on their site here. In the interview he talks more about his stage setup.

For even more on the tour and some cool behind the scenes videos on why Yahoo decided to tour checkout the official Yazoo site  http://www.yazooinfo.com/.

In closing,  I’ll leave you with video from Yazoo’s huge hit from the"Only You".
