Tickets go on sale for The Pet Shop Boys' UK tour
Date Posted: 07/12/12
Iconic musical duo The Pet Shop Boys have announced the first two dates of their Electric Tour next year.
The first UK gigs scheduled take place on Tuesday, June 18th at the O2 Arena London and on Thursday, June 20th at Manchester Arena, with tickets going on sale this morning (Friday, December 7th).
Electric will have a tough act to follow, as these dates are the first live stage productions since their hit tour Pandemonium, which began in 2009 and was put on in venues across the world, eventually ending in 2012.
Band members Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe are set to play songs from across their lengthy career, including hits from their latest album, Elysium, which has been warmly praised by many critics.
The BBC described the album as "accomplished stuff", adding that it was "neither a foray into rap music, nor a throwing in of the towel".
