Erasure: World Be Gone Tour @ Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
Feb 18 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Erasure: World Be Gone Tour @ Aylesbury Waterside Theatre | England | United Kingdom

Since releasing their first single in 1985, Erasure have sold more than 25 million albums worldwide. And now we are delighted to announce that they will be performing live at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

Their brand new album, World Be Gone, features ten new tracks written, performed and produced by Erasure and mixed by Matty Green.

With the largest catalogue of high-gloss singles in British pop, Erasure are not a band that many associate with protest politics. But the spirit of resistance has always fueled their gloriously uplifting music, and World Be Gone is no different. Opener Love You To The Sky is a swooning love song that floods the album with light. Still It’s Not Over is a reminder of their place in the gay rights movement.

It’s hard to think of another songwriting partnership as golden as that of Erasure. For 32 years, without a break or break-up, Andy Bell and Vince Clarke have mined a rich seam of creativity that has led to chart-conquering singles, a string of immaculate albums, a BRIT, an Ivor Novello Award and now World Be Gone, their seventeenth studio album.

Don’t miss your opportunity to see this amazing duo live in Aylesbury!

Los Endos – And When There Were Five @ Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
Feb 24 @ 7:30 pm
Los Endos - And When There Were Five @ Aylesbury Waterside Theatre | England | United Kingdom

Los Endos, probably the best Genesis tribute band in the UK, are proudly playing the Aylebury Waterside Theatre with a new show for 2018.

The only gig that Genesis played in the UK in 1978 was Knebworth – a show lovingly remembered by those lucky enough to be there. We can’t get away from 40 year anniversaries and 1978’s best selling album is well represented with ‘Lady Lies’ and ‘Burning Rope’ among at least four songs from And Then There Were Three…. We also have old favourites like Cinema Show, Ripples, Salmacis and loads more plus of course, Los Endos’ famous value for money extras!

If you’ve seen the band before, you know what to expect – top quality musicianship, top quality sound and a stunningly beautiful light show to complement this timeless, astonishing music.

As we always say ‘Let’s Keep Prog Rock Live!’
