TORONTO — British pop act Erasure is hitting the road again — and coming to Toronto.

Andy Bell and Vince Clarke announced Tuesday their upcoming Violet Flame Tour will stop at the Danforth Music Hall on Sept. 30.

It is the only Canadian city on the tour, which covers more than 50 cities in the U.S. and Europe.

The tour kicks off Sept. 9 in Miami Beach and ends New Year’s Eve in New York City.

Erasure’s 16th album, The Violet Flame, is scheduled for release in September.

Erasure enjoyed success in the ’80s with hits like “Chains of Love” and “A Little Respect” and in the ’90s with the hit “Always.”

Bell, 50, and Clarke, 53, formed Erasure in 1985 after Clarke left Depeche Mode and Yaz.
