Just seen the video for domino dancing by west end girls and it's ok. What do ya all think if they supported the boys on their next tour?

I think it would be better if West End Girls were the headline act, really.
Does cameos only.

Good idea - Way back Neil did say that one day the Pet Shop Boys would change their line up! I keep playing their version of domino dancing and I like it more each time I hear it. Of course Neil and Chris are gods but they can't go on forever and we could have found their replacements :idea:

do people still like opening acts? I just find them usually an ok at best pleasant distraction. I dont think I have ever come across a opening band that made me say,wow, they should headline someday.

I dont want appetizers I just want to get straight to the steak.

I like the expression 'straight to the steak' :lol:
Opening acts.....this reminds me of when the 'Release' tour was doing the rounds and I went along to Brixton Academy in London. The guy doing the support was not very good (voice was ok, but thats it) and PSB were late. I don't think this guy expected to be on so long and by the end of his act the audience were just about gnawing their own tongues in despair.
As for 'West end Girls' well it would be quite a good 'novelty' warm up before the REAL thing appeared.

Actually it's an awful video. I hate smug vidoes that try sooo hard to be cheeky, knowing and smug. There's probably more chance of Hear'Say supporting the Boys.

wasn't the support Tiga doing a Dj Set and no-one else, or is my mind playing tricks
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

I was thinking about that recently. I'm sure Tiga did a set before PSB at Brixton for the Release tour.

And for the "Uni" tour, they have that god-awful "ARE Weapons" band...... :roll: :lol:

'Tiga' ? Maybe, but I remember by the time most had gathered at the front and PSB were overdue on stage everyone around me wanted this guy off ! It was mind gnawing at the time. Didn't he sing ? Oh well, it's a bit of a haze now.

As support band they would be ok. :D I´m going to see PSB live next year anyway.

A.R.E Weapons was funny as the PSB fans were too polite to say anything!! If it had been any other band they would have been bottled off but as PSB have a fairly sophisticated audience everyone was quiet and patient!!

I did see REM earlier this year, and Bright Eyes were the support. I must say that although they didn't match the might of REM, they were actually pretty good.
