Songs will be made available online before the shows Edinburgh run and they are in talks with the Leicester Square theatre to have the show there for four or five nights.
Musik premiers in Edinburgh on 5 august, so could we expect the new songs in 2 weeks?

The survivors is in my all time top five. I literally “whooped” when they played it at the Albert Hall gig
I always skipped that song until I heard it in the 2012 orchestral performance. It suddenly clicked and now it's one of the highlights of the album imo.

Re: Pet Shop Boys to create music for My Beautiful Laundrette stage adaptation

Nope. A lot of 80s songs were "recreated" in Bollywood movies, and never given credit or acknowledged. For those interested, here are two more mentions of PSB songs reused in Bollywood https://www.itwofs.com/hindi-others.html https://www.itwofs.com/hindi-rr.html Hilarious. However, I don't think I ...

Re: Premiere of 'A Man From The Future' at BBC Proms - 23/07/14

Very good

Someone on twitter found this out
I just got a nice little shiver when working out whether the binary on the ribbon of the new £50 banknote meant anything.

1010111111110010110011000 is 23061912 in decimal. Alan Turing was born on the 23rd June 1912. What a nice touch.

Literally font

I am working on some silly hobby project, which will probably never be finished, but for this I need the font that is used for the Literally magazines. I tried Bembo Book W04, which is used on the PSB website, but it's not quite the same. Does anyone know?

Re: Final results of poll on three favorite songs of the "Behaviour era"

I picked 3 non-album tracks. I had one or two from the album itself but Delusions of Grandeur and Hallo Spaceboy are just fantastic (I still think Hallo Spaceboy is one of the best things they've done).

So between Super and the new album, they did some tracks for Agenda, the Billie Trix play and this? Wow. No wonder it took 4 years to make.

There's also a difference between https://www.petshopboys-forum.com and https://petshopboys-forum.com
You need to have "www" in the URL.

Re: The musical that just won't die ;)

I just read this review:
https://www.thestage.co.uk/reviews/2019 ... ag-london/

It mentions the songs are great and so are the preformances, but the biggest problem with the musical is the book.
