2008 - Yazoo @ Olympia Theatre, Dublin June 2nd
The Dublin crowd just loved Alison and Vince
The backdrops were spectacular

Yazoo's RECONNECTED tour sees Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke, of Erasure Fame (also co-founder of the legendary Depeche Mode), touring together after 25 years of not working and almost not talking together.
The Olympia Theatre was packed and Yazoo were amazing. Their material stood the test of time and they played all their big hits from Situation to Don't go and of course the brilliant Only You.
Alison is in top form and her vocals just blew the audience away. Mastermind Vince Clarke was more animated than usual as he had to use the vocoder a couple of times.
The combination of two brilliant artists both giving it their all and more was something that was deeply felt and appreciated.
