Re: US TOUR

Hey all - sorry wasn't sure where to post this question but I have two options on tickets for the Madison Square Garden concert. My tickets are Block 108 row 18 - off to the near side of the stage and higher up in the tier and my friend has tickets in the opposite block 116 row 10 - so closer by 8 r...

Re: Death of Ennio Morricone

Hmm ... all the love here makes me thinks I need to give this a dedicated listen today. It's been a while since I've played this one.

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

I had a school friend who was a massive fan. He made me a mix tape of PSB, some time in 1989. Looking back, it was a slightly weird mix of songs; I remember that it had The Sound of the Atom Splitting on it, Don Juan, and Shopping, but not Rent, Suburbia, What have I done to deserve this? or Domino...

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

1985 - my big sis told me about a song I 'might' like - West End Girls.

I was in love with it immediately ... but I think I'd have to say listening to Please and hearing those synth landscapes on a crappy cassette player over and over cemented the addiction.

US TOUR

In this case I’d say yes ... but in most cases like festivals, the headline act plays last and longest and is the main attraction. But here - the groups are co-headlining so EQUAL billing ... alternating who goes first and second is just a mechanism that supports the equal status here. Seems fair to...

Re: US TOUR

From the official press release:

"Both bands will play a full set with the headliner alternating each night."

Hopeful that there will be a crossover at the end for an Electronic encore

Re: US TOUR

I think it's the same headline order as previous ... judging by this schedule from ticketmaster I believe the first act listed is the headliner for that night 1. Sep 18, 2021 / Budweiser Stage - Toronto, Canada / NEW ORDER & Pet Shop Boys 2. Sep 20, 2021 / Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion - Boston, MA. ...

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

For me West End Girls was the track that got me hooked and I'm so glad it did! ... Throughout the years it's always struck me as a bit 'different' to their other catalogue ... so many of their other songs have a certain 'PSB" sound and in some cases can sound quite similar to each other (especially ...

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

Don't read the comments. 35 years on and people still resort to the same type of asinine bs opinions. Still, I guess, congrats to Neil & Chris for this pointless accolade! Good quote from Neil on this: " It’s always good to wind up the punters, let’s face it. The comments below [the West End Girls ...
