The 2008 reunion tour by Yazoo — or Yaz, as the Vince Clarke/Alison Moyet group was called in the U.S. — will be documented with a two-disc concert album called Reconstructed Live that’s due out this fall, the band announced today on its official site.
Although a tracklist hasn’t been unveiled, the live album — due out Sept. 27 in the U.K. — will include songs from the duo’s two albums, 1982’s Upstairs at Eric’s and 1983’s You and Me Both, including “Only You,” “Don’t Go,” “Situation” and “Nobody’s Diary,” the latter of which was performed live for the first time ever on the reunion tour, according to today’s announcement.
Clarke, one-half of Erasure and a onetime member of Depeche Mode, re-teamed with Moyet in 2008 for the first time in more than 25 years. At the time, Clarke said, “It’s been really good going back to these songs after such a long while.” Moyet added: “Playing the material live is not about revision for me, it is about finishing something we started.”

I saw the show in oakland and was blown away by how good they were. I really wish they’d have filmed a few shows for a live DVD.
I’d love to hear Alison and Andy Bell duet on a Vince Clarke composition.
what about a dvd?
I was in Oakland too and it was fantastic!!!!!!
i always love it when the synth/laptop guy is acting busy while a track plays. hilarious. thanks for sharing.
Its great to see that even when a band member leaves a group they can come up with greatness just listening to Spock VCMG great track and I hope Alan Wilder is listening. Long live Depeche Mode Original to present great work guys Spock is an epic techno track with an addcitive bass line thats makes you want more excellent I hope if thee is an Album that all the tracks are this good well done and good luck.
