Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

Let's face it, all three are very much in the limelight right now. This would be a pretty sweet gig if they all make it on.

Bets on what Chris'll wear for a face covering...

Re: Interesting bits in Annually

One thing I found amusing from Neil’s 1986 diary is that he keeps mentioning that Chris was there! As if he wouldn’t be there at all these PSB-related activities. “Arrived at Top of the Pops to perform the new single. Chris Lowe from the Pet Shop Boys was there! Great to catch up.” That's hilarious...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Covers

Not a huge fan of these cover albums to be honest. There might be the occasional piece of gold but not worth the asking price to find out. Although I realise there are many fans of the unofficial remixers out there (and indeed I have listened and enjoyed them myself) I stick with the official stuff ...

Re: Will UNITY TOUR be delayed or canceled?

From what Neil says on the podcast it sounds like Unity will be postponed again, but they’re not at a point where they can officially announce that yet: “They [both the Dreamworld and Unity tours] got put back and then put back ag... erm, or the, most of it's been put back again next year, I’m not ...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

I doubt any European date in 2021 will happen especially if it's just one date. Lugging gear to Spain and all the crew/stage design required etc. would not be cost effective. Agree, it likely wouldn't be worth it. Unity tour hangs in the balance. If USA is doing better its possible they could cance...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

Just saw their Dreamworld date in Denmark is now cancelled.

That leaves only Bilbao as a live date in Europe before the Unity tour is meant to begin in September. :(

Re: "Cricket Wife" initial commentary

Wayne's interpretation, if correct, makes this one of most devastatingly sad songs the Boys have ever done, in this listeners opinion.

Not a bad thing I might add, but I nearly cried just reading his interpretation. I haven't even heard it yet.

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

I like this response, and so true. Speaking from a heterosexual male perspective. Personally no issue for me to watch whatsoever, but definitely saucy!!! Good on them for performing as they wish. As a straight male who went to Closer to Heaven back in 2001 and have a young Louie Spence gyrate right...

I imagine they'll have to announce what's happening for the Unity tour first too.

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

Paypal seems the be the way to go to avoid this. I use Paypal and (knock on wood) haven't had a problem with Digital Stores - although their delivery times are astonishingly poor - I wont pay top dollar for premium delivery though. It is a pain to have to pay up front but if that's what it takes to ...

Re: Will UNITY TOUR be delayed or canceled?

One week on and my feelings remain unchanged. I cant see this happening in Canada. Perhaps they think they can make a go of it for the US dates which is why Neil was less than committed to answering questions about it. Also consider they might still be finalizing rescheduling so he can't really spea...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

In hindsight, it’s utterly ridiculous that they didn’t tour the UK and/or Europe off the back of Very. That album catapulted them back after the muted Behaviour reception. Back with a bang after a greatest hits compilation that many would have thought would be the end. Their only UK number one albu...

First time ever that something from the official store has arrived in the actual release day! I’m happy! Same here! :) Hoping Annually and Cricket Wife will arrive as quickly next Friday too! Love Comes Quickly remix? (Cricket Wife Comes Quickly) ...said the cricketer to his friend. :lol:

They like it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFm4-FFoocM Yeah but they completely misunderstand the original intent.. the criticism of the yuppie era. Misunderstood or not, its great to see a couple of younger people get genuinely excited for a PSB track released over 30 years ago. I hope they spr...
