"I think it’s an amazingly good album, I’ve got to be honest with you. It’s one of the albums I feel most proud of. But for people who don’t really know us, and have a sort of an idea about us, ‘Electric’ is more what the Pet Shop Boys are meant to be."
(Neil Tennant, speaking about "Elysium" on the eve of "Electric" release.)

"They have collaborated with and influenced an array of music’s biggest stars, such as The Killers, Madonna, Lady Gaga and Daft Punk."

Daft Punk?

It's about time!
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Daft Punk?
And "Radiohead"... because Chris once joked that "We're Radiohead you can listen to."

But Daft Punk? I kinda think the average PSB fan would be aware of that.

Seriously though, the only Daft Punk references I remotely remember regarding the PSB, were some critics saying that Electric (or possibly Super... I can't remember which) was better than the Daft Punk album that had been released earlier that same year. Whether it was or wasn't doesn't really matter.

Aside from that, they forgot Bowie. Just a little oversight I suppose... :(

With an amount of only 100 tickets i'm quite surprised these tickets are still available!

There's lots of talk or a Daft Punk tour this year; could there be a PSB collab too?
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

There are more than 100 for the venue, but 100 reserved for the pit, probably for those who click through from the OS.

Great news - well done to PSB.

Now all we need is a back catalogue to promote, perhaps some reissues..... ;-)
