Re: Asia tour merch

At the HK show last night, the only merch I could see were the Super T-shirts and Stupidity shirts and caps. There was a really long line for merchandise so I'm not surprised stuff sold out. I didn't see any tour programmes or the Agenda sweatshirt that's on the website. I saw a guy on the train hom...

Re: The Super Tour

I'm happy to report Hong Kong was fabulous last night. I'm so glad to have seen the Super tour at long-last! The audience were on their feet for the whole show, which doesn't always happen in this part of the world. In fact, when the show began the Asia World Expo stewards were shouting at people to...

Re: The Super Tour

In today's South China Morning Post - Hong Kong's main English-language newspaper - there's an interview with Neil and an article about the Pets' intriguing relationship with HK. Their first-ever tour opened in HK in June 1989, just three weeks after the massacre in Tiananmen Square. The last time N...

Re: Grateful, beyond belief

De-lurking to add my agreement with the O.P. I'm thrilled about Agenda - it's fabulous to wake up to a new song and video every day. In the social media age, we all think our own opinions are oh-so very important, but we're not much interested in listening to what anyone else has to say. Every time ...

Re: Christmas card 2017

A fellow Pethead who works in data protection pointed out to me why I probably didn't get the e-card this year. Earlier in the year, do you remember all those data protection emails? My inbox was flooded with them for a week or two. Anyway, I most likely didn't respond to the email from Warners, the...

They must be getting a ton of money to go that far for just 5 shows.
It's all seated in Hong Kong, and about £128 for the front zones.
The HK ticket prices are bonkers!

My Annually has finally turned up today, six weeks after it was mailed from The Netherlands. Huzzah!

Re: New Annually - April 2nd 2018.

I am of course still waiting in Hong Kong. Good job I ordered early for Christmas! :roll: 5 weeks on and still waiting. Royal Mail to Hong Kong generally takes 7 days. It looks like it must have gone by surface mail. I would happily have paid a bit more for air mail - shame we weren't given this op...

When I saw the Electric tour in Hong Kong a couple of years back they had to have a second go at Domino Dancing because something or other crashed. :lol:

I hadn’t seen these photos before.

From 1984? Neil’s hairstyle is the same as that infamous first TV appearance in Belgium:

Re: Two in a Million

I remember seeing an advert in Record Mirror for the 1985 version of Opportunities that bore the slogan "due uomini tra un milione" - "two men in a million"?

Re: "Annually 2017", pre-order now

*delurks* The official shop is just dreadful. I ordered a Super T-shirt and tour programme back at the beginning of February. My account was debited £52 immediately. It then took a full month for the PSB Shop to tell me the T-shirt was permanently out of stock and issue me with a refund. Why let me ...
