Any ideas on timings for doors and when the boys will be on stage? I've got a friend coming up and with all the train disruption trying to plan ahead as best as I can.

Not sure anything has been communicated officially yet.

EDIT: Just noted in the email - doors at 19:00

I'm guessing stage time 8.15!
What's for supper?

My +1 is suddenly not available to make the concert on Friday. So I have a spare ticket.

If you can definitely get there around 6 then please drop me a PM and we can arrange to meet in the queue.

First PM (not message in this thread) gets the ticket.

I’ve just had this email.

I suspect because of the train strikes people are cancelling

As much as would love to go, I’m based in Cambridgeshire and I don’t want to risk getting stranded overnight in London if there are no trains back and Im not confident enough to drive into London.

Hey tucky101

A suggestion for you

Drive down the M11 and park up near one of the tube stations positioned in North London (Barnet perhaps?) … then tube down to Camden.

Worth considering …

I’ve literally just driven down to my local train station to ask what the score is - there is a Sunday service tomorrow and trains til late. There were actually a train leaving the station when I was there.

So I’m going!

Awesome news!

Yup … you won the golden ticket and you don’t wanna miss this one!

I’m really hoping for a surprise twist but not expecting it … after all this tour seems to be running like a Swiss watch

… can’t wait regardless!

Apologies if this question has been posed before, but does anyone know if the Electric Ballroom gig is a one off and unique performance like the Royal Albert Hall one or the Dreamworld presentation..?

The "Pet Shop Boys Surprise" gig in 2019 was literally a warm-up for the Hyde Park show the following night.

I am certain the Electric Ballroom show will be a warm-up for Glastonbury, minus the visuals because of the small venue. It'll be quite a unique experience, Surprise was, so I can't wait. See you there, those who are going!

PS: In a small venue, the Pet Shop Boys are LOUD.

I think the same. It’s listed as a Dreamworld tour date. At most I could imagine them using it to rehearse any special elements they will be adding for the Glasto show, such as special guests. But it would be amazing if they added a one-off song, like Paninaro.

According to their latest post, it’s “an intimate version of their Dreamworld festival setlist”. I wonder if space restrictions will mean they won’t have the big screen. It might essentially just be them and the band.

Excellent! Definitely need some visuals to go with this show … they are just too good and really add to the overall impact
