TOUR CREW MEMORY:

JULY 1987 - (Erasure's support tour with Duran Duran)

".....On the Duran tour I remember Kansas City well as we all got horribly lost after the show. Mansi was driving, with Vince navigating, and we got totally and utterly up shit creek. We took turns at having a go deciphering the road map until we were almost in tears. Turned out that there are two Kansas Cities, next door to each other, we had the map for the wrong one! "

-Mike Hall
