Both proven and proved are correct. Proven is more common in the US, whereas proved is used more outside of the US; sometimes chosen for the way it sounds.
Since proved is the regular past tense, many adopt proven as the past participle.
I know there will be some humans in this community that will shout....OFF TOPIC, MATE!!!!!!...but I'm a rebel. Anyway, interesting to see Saint Etienne (Bob, Pete and Sarah), make references to PSB on the promo language for their upcoming album Home Counties . Also, the album design is by Scott...
It's a strange thing. It's so conspicuous and obvious reference, but on the other hand they've been endlessly emphasizing their dissatisfaction with multitude of comparisons between them and PSB. I hope they're good friends, though. Perhaps it's kind of very deliberate irony?

Hmm, was convinced that they would be one of the headliners at this years Electric Picnic, but doesn't look like it.
I'm really sure, some of us will call it somethings for others to brag and don't like this kind of doing. But I know, the other half here will join in every day, cause it's damn interesting!
So please ignore the topic, if you don't like it! For all other: ENJOY!
Pet Shop Boys will play a special London show at the Royal Albert Hall in 2017 to support Teenage Cancer Trust, with Johnny Marr and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Details: smarturl.it/PSBTCTshow
I had an extra ticket I needed to get rid of after a friend pulled out (because of price!) and contacted RAH to see if I could return it to them to be sold as I heard about the extra checks in place. This is what they replied:
Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately once a booking has been made,...
With Sara Cox at BBC Radio 2 as she finishes her amazing 24-hour 80s dance marathon for Comic Relief. Link to Comic Relief below.
I caught a bit of Michael Ball this morning asking Sara if she’d like some Pet Shop Boys as they’re one of her favourite bands, saying he’d play “It’s A Sin” and then bizarrely playing some dreary 80’s power ballad immediately afterwards! There were a few acts the night before that did surprise...
After some hesitation, I decided to open this thread about small discoveries and news in the web that one way or another related to the Pet Shop Boys, but (in my opinion) don't deserve a dedicated topic on forum. A kind of pet texts, but more like petheads texts . So...

Afrika Green, one of Super Tour drummers, gave an interview for The Academy of Contemporary Music:
Interesting point is that she's planning her own project/band called... guess how? The Pop Kids!

Hello forum. I think you'll agree that it's always a thrilling moment when a much-admired, much-loved act returns from self-imposed exile to remind us of the life-affirming brilliance that's been sorely missed during a seemingly-endless absence. But enough about me. I'm sure you're just as excited...
I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more has also grown on me over the years. The production is so warm and lush.
Has anyone heard Love Letters that they recorded with David Morales in those session?
The final results are in for my poll this past week, in which I asked my site visitors to choose their favorite narrative persona -- a character other than himself -- adopted by Neil in the lyrics of Pet Shop Boys songs. And the character who received the largest number of votes was:
Hey there! Tomorrow (Saturday) is the last full day of my current poll, which asks you to choose your favorite character (other than himself) portrayed by Neil in the lyrics of one of the Pet Shop Boys' songs. If you haven't voted yet, please take a moment to visit my Commentary site at and make...

We are pleased to announce that Pet Shop Boys will be returning to Spain, bringing the Super Tour to the Teatro Real in Madrid on Monday, July 10th. The show is part of the Universal Music Festival, a series of concerts which this year also includes performances by The Pretenders,...
I will definitely go, more for the place (to which I've never been) than for the concert. I hope the pets fulfil my expectations with the super tour. I've been to many performances before and it was precisely performance the one that I keep the best memories of.
Pet Shop Boys have published their own magazine, Literally, since 1989 and last year announced it would become an annual publication. Now we are happy to announce a new name and format. From now on Literally is Annually, a bigger (240 x 170 mm), hard-backed, 64-page book.

I prefer Pet Shop Boys, annually to Pet Shop Boys. Annually.
