Re: US TOUR

I suspect the issue is that PSB and NO have jointly gone with Scott King for this project, rather than using their traditional Farrow or Saville. I mean to be fair Pet Shop Boys have a long history of terribly designed tour shirts. For such a design conscious group, they've probably offered four or...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

Neil does not mime, he sings live at every show. He sings along to an in-ear guide vocal that the audience do not hear. I think he might use some kind of pitch correction, which helps create the "too perfect" sound, but it is absolutely a live vocal. See Glastonbury for confirmation. Take...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

We are used to 22+ songs, more b-sides being played. Something for even the die hard fans thrown in. ...but we're getting a version of that here too. 'Losing my mind' is a b-side to a single released 31 years ago. Some of the songs have new intros and arrangements. It's not like they're just pressi...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

We're talking hypotheticals here and you're fixated on the number of dates as if that's not also something that could be changed. The reality is there are 13 dates. If wishes were horses... I think it's perfectly reasonable to expect some variation from the previous tour given not only the above fa...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

Stripped-down gigs in their dotage without any bells and whistles, semi-acoustic with storytelling between songs is the tour I wanna see. Yeah, the Release tour was great and I'd love to see another one like it. Something like Kylie's Anti-Tour, with deep cuts etc. But let's be honest, it probably ...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

I get that your reasons for defending the tour the way it is, but it there is nothing wrong with being constructively critical of the art we consume. Even if we don't have a solution doesn't mean we don't have a right to be disappointed. Constructive criticism would take the reality of the economic...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

We have two bands with 40+ years of culturally defining moments with millions of die hard collectors and overlapping fans who buy *everything* they put forth, yet neither have the confidence to stray far from their top 40 catalog ls in concert? They need to have more respect for their audiences and...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

Not Invisible we did offer suggestions as to what they could change. I think that's how we've got into this stupid to and fro debate. You didn't like our suggestions I think they were fine suggestions. They just weren't realistic suggestions considering the time and expense required to achieve them...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

A slightly different set from NO tonight. Man, I hope they didn’t blow all their profit swapping one song for another! So now we're moving the goalposts to updating the setlist, presumably having admitted you have no practical answers to the economic and logistical challenges outlined above. Pet Sh...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

You’re right. This is the best they could do. It’s literally impossible to achieve anything better or more creative. Shane on me for thinking otherwise. I didn't say this was the best they could do (although I disagree it's a bad show, considering it's a hits setlist with a unique show never before...
