Poll ends soon on how often you've seen PSB perform live, in-person

#1 Post by geowayne » Fri 25 Jan 2019, 6:11 am

Hey there! Tomorrow (Saturday) is the last full day of my current survey, which simply asks how many times you have seen the Pet Shop Boys perform "live," in-person. If you haven't taken part yet, please take a moment to visit my "Commentary" site at http://www.geowayne.com/psbhtml.htm and make the appropriate choice right there on my home page.

On Sunday I will end this survey, post the final results, and kick off a new poll for the week ahead.

Thanks to everyone who has already voted! And I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

6 for me:

Performance - NEC
Savoy Theatre
Battleship Potemkin - Trafalgar Sq
Fundamental - Tower of London
Fundamental - Thetford
Pandemonium - O2

and, indirectly, Closer to Heaven (original run) and The Most Incredible Thing.

My life has got much busier in the last few years, but I really want to see them at least once before they hang their boots up.
