The Nightlife stage set was fantastic. Fantastic visionary who was innovative both in her work and barriers she broke down
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

Es Devlin.
"I think it’s an amazingly good album, I’ve got to be honest with you. It’s one of the albums I feel most proud of. But for people who don’t really know us, and have a sort of an idea about us, ‘Electric’ is more what the Pet Shop Boys are meant to be."
(Neil Tennant, speaking about "Elysium" on the eve of "Electric" release.)

From os
Zaha
We are shocked and sad to hear of the sudden death of the magnificent Zaha Hadid, an artist, innovator and, for us, a dream collaborator. She fought to get her highly original work made and became one of the greatest architects of our time. She was the most incredible person and we feel privileged to have known her. Neil and Chris x

Due to a heart attack, apparently.

I only saw Nightlife once and also attended Paralympic swimming in her amazing pool. I also get to see her Sackler Gallery quite often as I work at the Royal Albert Hall. I had never heard of her when PSB announced the collaboration. They expanded my world once more. RIP to a great talent.

Was blown away by that "Nightlife Tour" set -- and how it gradually changed and morphed throughout the show and depending on the venue. She was a great talent. RIP.

So Sad ! RIP
I was born in a hospital room with green walls, the doctor who delivered me wore a green overall, so did the nurses hovering around. So much greenery around, its no wonder that it is my favourite colour !
