Re: Super Press Reviews

The Observer review is by Kitty Empire who also gave Electric 3/5 when Alexis Petridis had given it 4/5 in The Guardian. Similarly this time, Dorian Lynskey gave it 4/5 in The Guardian.

Idolator 4/5 "In these days where “super” pop is a rare commodity, music still needs the Pet Shop Boys.

Hi, can you give me some advice please about this show? I'm actually on holiday in Barcelona that day but I don't arrive into Gare Sants until 20:30 and then need to check into my hotel in Hospitalet. Do you think they will be on stage later than 22:00?
