''The Two-Ring Circus'' is a combination remix and live album from Erasure that served as a companion piece to their second album ''The Circus''. It was released in 1987 on Mute Records in the UK and Sire Records in the U.S. The vinyl version was a double album that did not contain the final six live tracks which appeared on the cassette and CD versions.

UK chart rules at the time made ''The Two Ring Circus'' ineligible to chart, although it did reach number twenty-six in Germany. It became their second release to briefly slip into the Billboard 200, peaking at number 186.

All but one song on ''The Two Ring Circus'' were Erasure originals that had already appeared on their first two albums. The last track, a live version of "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)" was their first remake of an ABBA tune, foreshadowing a concept that would later provide them with a number-one in the UK in 1992 with the ''Abba-esque'' EP.

All live tracks, recorded in Hamburg, previously featured on the triple 12" single release for "The Circus". There was a further live song per 12" not featured on this album.

No singles were released from this album. - Wikipedia
