Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

The Unity tour is finely balanced I think. I know the US are powering ahead with vaccine rollout though Canada which is where the tour starts in late September is lagging a bit. Also noted that 'test' events are going ahead in MSG New York currently and I think all eyes on Justin Bieber (never thoug...

Re: Neil's voice archetypes

How would you classify the style used for ‘After All’?

That’s my favourite singing style ... seems a bit conversational, a bit detached?

Re: Neil's voice archetypes

Falsetto Neil. Most of "Before" I must admit that I'm not a fan of falsetto Neil. But sometimes it works. Like in "King of Rome" There is just something about that song. The falsetto just flows there. Spot on .... not my favourite Neil singing style either. King of Rome is so lu...

Re: Audience applause/acclaim effects in studio tracks

They use this effect sparingly and it’s never really been something that I’ve considered detrimental in those cases.

It’s all good if you ask me <applause clip goes here/>

Re: Cardi B tells guest he looks a Pet Shop Boy

This news even drew a laconic eyebrow raise from my 13yr old this morning. 35 years later and I'm still desperately seeking recognition for my heroes. It's been a life's work! This is perfectly put and sounds exactly like me albeit with a 15 year old and a 13 year old. We need to keep the PSB fires...

Re: Top Three Sleeve Artwork

Great thread Goalden! Hard to go with just three! My choices: Introspective - vinyl cover The standard vinyl cover is a thing of beauty. Graphic, bold and effortlessly cool. The hot pink and red bars right next to each other shouldn't really work but for me it is my favourite part. It's very frameab...

Albums played live

And what's the point for us hardcore fans with a greatest hits show... that's for the proles... I disagree. I was/am really looking forward to Dreamworld because it's essentially the first time they've ever done a GH tour. It's exciting to think of all those songs being played together for the firs...

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

Sorry...but what is the exact meaning of "cricket wife". I am a native spanish speaker. Thank you. Hi Machu I’m a cricket fan and I’ll admit ‘cricket fan’ is not a phrase I’ve heard of before ... Perhaps it alludes to a woman married to a person that is cricket mad .... and she may have a...

So if Cricket Wife is indeed the new 'single' ... will this and the Lockdown version of West End girls make their way to streaming sites as well?

Re: Pet Shop Boys remix Paul Weller

Just heard the PW track ... sounds like a Blur/Bowie mash up.

I think the PSB will take this one in a totally different direction.

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

I hear ya Gabby ... I was 50 for when this was originally planned and I’m getting older by the second!

Happy if it pushes back to 2022 also ... just don’t want it cancelled [emoji1431]

Also if postponed ... hopeful the NYC gig changes back to a Saturday date!

DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

Yup but the Leeds and Reading festivals are outdoor events. Definitely the right thing for the Dreamworld tour to be pushed back a year.

I wonder what will happen on the Unity Tour. I saw that they allowed limited fans to attend a basketball game at Madison Square Gardens this week ....
