For the first time in more than 25 years, British dance duo Yazoo -- known as Yaz in the United States -- will reunite for a series of shows in the U.K. and U.S. this summer.
The Reconnected tour kicks off June 4 at the Glasgow Clyde Auditorium in Scotland and continues for four more dates, finishing June 18 at London's Hammersmith Apollo. U.S. dates are yet to be announced.
Tickets for the European shows go on sale Friday (Jan. 25) through the band's Web site
, then go up for general sale Feb. 1.
"In Your Room," a four-disc collection of remasters, remixes, B-sides, a DVD and the band's only two albums "Upstairs at Eric's" and "You and Me Both," is also set for release in May.
Group members Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet parted ways in the summer of 1983, after the success of their singles "Only You" and "Don't Go," plus the U.K. chart-topper "You and Me Both."
Clarke has spent the rest of his career in Erasure; singer Moyet has released a number of solo albums, including last year's "Turn." Here are Yaz's tour dates:
June 4: Glasgow (Clyde Auditorium)
June 7: Manchester, England (Apollo)
June 12: Wolverhampton, England (Wolverhampton Civic Hall)
June 15: Brighton, England (Brighton Centre)
June 18: London (Hammersmith Apollo)
