Bright Light Bright Light to support Erasure at the Royal Concert Hall

Bright Light Bright Light is the alias of Welsh synth pop artist Rod Thomas. With numerous nu-disco flecked releases, including his most recent critically acclaimed album ‘Choreography’, Rod has seen great success, with his past two records making the UK Independent Albums chart top 20.

Throughout his colourful career, Bright Light Bright Light has collaborated with household names such as the Scissor Sisters, Elton John and Alan Cumming.

He will be supporting Erasure on their sold-out tour, where they will playing hits such as Love to Hate You and A Little Respect on the 12th of February at the Royal Concert Hall.
Having previously remixed BLBL’s ‘Running Back To You’, Erasure’s Vince Clarke is a friend of Rod’s, and with Erasure being one of his biggest influences, both acts hitting the road together will be a dazzling way to start 2018.

Speaking about the upcoming tour, Rod Thomas said: “My love of Erasure and how important I think they are both to the LGBT community and to music, in general, has been well documented.
“Being able to do a full tour opening for them is a total joy – the teenage me can’t believe what’s happening and the current me isn’t much calmer either really!
“Vince and Andy are legends and also happen to be two of the nicest people I’ve met, so all in all, this double bill is a dream.”

With a penchant for “drama” like Erasure, BLBL’s song ‘Little Bit’ from his new album captures his most euphoric and over the top loving side. You can listen to this here.

An intriguing and exuberant artist who is full of surprises, make sure you don’t miss Bright Light Bright Light as he supports Erasure in Nottingham.
