Really glad you were able to book, Grover. Hope you have an excellent time. Maybe some fans can arrange to hook up before hand. I suppose for some people the priority will be to get a plce near the stage at the front.!

As for Sparks. as Neil said at the interview at the National Portrait Gallery he is not certain why people keep citing Sparks as such an influence on the Pet Shop Boys. He then went on to say that they (Sparks) have someone behind the keyboards looking grumpy and a lead singer! This provoked much la...

Yes must have been a completly different documentary! Not suggesting that all PSB fans rush out to buy DVD just for a short clip. If they are intersted in Derek Jarman also, then the PSB backstage stuff coul be considered a bit of a 'bonus'. OK I admit it I just enoyed seeing Neil in his DJ and bow ...

Hadn't read these posts before booking, but I managed to book mine directly through the Heaven website on Saturday. Was going to come on and post this news as the O/S still has nothing on booking arrangements!!

'Derek' last night on More 4 was excellent. Tilda Swinton's perceptive and moving comments about the continued relevance of Jarman got right to the nub of his talent. I reckon a DVD release is likely. For PSB fans there were clips of 'It's A Sin' and behind the scenes footage (from first tour I thin...

Thank you for the link to the Guardian. So sad that Derek Jarman is no longer with us. I can't beleive that it was 14 years ago that he died. I have a great memory of him grinning broadly at me (when I was living in Soho and had popped out to buy fish and chips in a T'Shirt and running shorts!!). Al...

Richard and Judy discuss Dusty and 'Nothing has been proved'

After watching Dusty perform 'You don't have to say you Love Me' in an archive clip, Richard Madeley has just mentioned an industry event where Dusty performed 'Nothing has been proved' and that it sent shivers up his spine! He also mentioned that it was a song from Scandal and written by PSB's. Gre...

Neil swearing. [/quote] He has been known to swear before. (I mean in the public arena as it were). For example the demos for 'Closer to Heaven'! BTW the film season associated with the Jarman exhibition has been titled 'It's a Sin' although there is no further Pet Shop Boys link with the films chos...

Wonderful. Thanks for posting. Anyone booked to see Liza this year?

'Dancing on the lawn for a car- sick woman' would be a great song title! Maybe too off the wall to be a Liza song though. :D
