Electronic was a side project. A whole new Pets album is much, much more exciting.
i'd actually rather see a new Electronic album, than a new PSB, or a new New Order album. that's just me though.
If it’s like their debut, I’d agree. If it’s like their third, not so much.

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

It was a shame Chris’s podium didn’t turn all the way round for his intro. His spotlight failed too. Other than that pretty faultless.

Woah! Hold on! Put down the absorbent sheeting as I could possibly wet myself. Another Electronic album!!!!!!!?????? That would be ace, especially if it was like the first one. I still listen to all 3 from time to time but the first is still a masterpiece. Yeah, no kidding. This is potentially bigg...

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

Neil says Dreamland is to the new album as So Hard is to Behaviour. That doesn't mean the new album is like Behaviour, just that the first single is totally different from the rest of the album. I suspect one of the biggest clues as to the sound of the new album are the photos of the old analogue e...

I guess though this does suggest why they aren’t touring this album but are jumping straight to a Greatest Hits tour.

Look at the sales from Elysium and compare with Electric or Super.
Why are sales so important?

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

Asked who they would like to collaborate with, living or dead, Neil shared an anecdote about Nina Simone recording a version of Sacrifice for an Elton John covers album. Apparently the production was very poor, so it was mooted that PSB would rework it, but it was unrescuable. He pointed out that NS...

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

Neil asked as to what criteria they should apply as they compile the set list for the Greatest Hits tour. A discussion with the audience seemed to end with Neil agreeing this would focus on top twenty hits only. He initially tested the water by asking whether, for example, they should play Paninaro.

The event ended with Neil reading the lyrics from Your Funny Uncle which was (for me anyway) particularly moving.

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

Neil had celebrated Chris’s birthday the night before along with family members. It was pointed out to Chris how much he had smiled during the Hyde Park concert. Chris just shrugged it off. Neil pointed out that they both actually find the audience reaction very moving. Apparently Chris had specific...

He was asked about the likelihood of doing the Glastonbury legends slot next year... basically he sounded very positive but pointed out they don’t perform in daylight given the reliance on lasers and lighting. The implication was they have another, later slot.
