  2. Why isn’t this thread called Pet Shop Boys, Generally?
     
  3. It used to be! But someone renamed it without understanding the levels of it all!

  8. They are doing Lanxess Arena in Cologne? Okay...last time I saw them live in Cologne was in 2009 at Palladium. Lanxess Arena is literally three times as big. I guess the tour must have been going quite a bit better than I would have expected.

  9. Well in 2009 they played two (3,000 cap or so) dates in Greece. No act does that, a greek tour. They were in their go whenever era.

  11. I think they’re capitalising on the current ticket prices, where they probably only need to fill half an arena to make a profit. The Spanish concerts were half full and went on without a hitch or a threat of cancellation!

  12. They are due a new album though, as it will be three years in January since Hotspot. I think the most they’ve ever gone is four years between albums (between Release and Fundamental; and Super and Hotspot)? I can’t think of many acts that are as consistent as that over 37 years or so (though probably loads!)

  13. Mad really, the evolution from Behaviour to Nightlife, being only eight years, but four albums.

  14. I wouldn't be surprised if they had written tons of songs during the pandemic and since. I guess they are recouping their losses after the tour was postponed and that show is an absolute winner, it will get bums on seats. But can we have an album as well, please, Neil and Chris?
     
  15. I imagine that they're catching up with lost time, and who could blame them really? The tour is brilliant and has been really popular so far. I reckon they'll have been writing as well, in the down time. There's a big gap until these newer dates. I wonder if they'll record the new album at the start of next year?

  18. They can get all three on, but it'll still sound like PSB.
