Yaz(oo) reforms, tours

The seminal synth-pop duo Yaz–the group behind such I Love The '80s fodder as "Don't Go," "Situation," and "Nobody's Diary"– is reuniting and touring behind a new retrospective box set titled In Your Room. Yaz (Yazoo outside the U.S.) members Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet only played 24 shows while active a quarter century ago, but their two albums–1982's Upstairs At Eric's and 1983's You And Me Both–solidified the electro-spiked, new-wave sound that Clarke had previously established as a founder of Depeche Mode, for which he wrote classics like "Just Can't Get Enough," "New Life," and "Dreaming Of Me." Both Clarke and Moyet went on to considerable success after Yaz (Clarke most famously as half of Erasure), but there's long been a soft spot for the twosome's insanely catchy, simultaneously soulful and robotic anthems. Those U.S. tour dates (which follow a handful of European shows):

7/7, Oakland, CA, Paramount Theatre 7/10, Los Angeles, CA, Orpheum Theatre 7/11, Los Angeles, CA, Orpheum Theatre 7/14, Chicago, IL, Chicago Theatre 7/16, New York, NY, Terminal 5 7/17, New York, NY, Terminal 5
