Re: Any crazy hanging out stories with Neil/Chris?

I bumped into both of them in the Ghetto a few times, when it was the epicentre of the London electroclash scene in the early noughties. Both times they were completely wasted. Neil could barely speak! I got him a glass of water from the bar. A friend of theirs offered me some ecstasy pills, from a ...

That's interesting because I didn't receive your message on there.

I would have probably been open to selling, although not for less than 3k, which it seems more than possible to obtain!

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Given the SECC is now being converted to a hospital, it's a given these dates be moved forward.

Moving forward by a year makes sense - we're unlikely to be back to 'normal' prior to then.

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

Tickets at the front of the Hollywood Bowl show are on sale for $1950. Just a regular ticket. Jesus.

They've added a second Hollywood Bowl date - tickets on sale next week. I am sorely tempted.

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

I would love to see the Hollywood Bowl show. What an iconic venue.

So tempting to fly out there for that show. But I'm often in San Francisco for work and can't justify another round trip. Plus it's such a long flight.

Looks like tickets have sold very well so far.

They sell 90% of their records outside the UK.

The obsession on UK charts and sales is odd.

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

O2 is now sold out, there are however 7 tickets available for re sale, Bournemouth also sold out, whilst Manchester,Cardiff and Newcastle all have less than 200 tickets remaining. Not sure on Birmingham as it’s hard to tell via the website. But Glasgow sales are poor in comparison, with plenty of t...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

That's a fraud. Most of these unavalable seats have the same status from the very beggining. I follow this gig very carefully. I am afraid that no more than 200-300 were sold since annoucement. Over 80% of capacity is standing, and you have no way of knowing how many standing tickets have been sold...

Is there anywhere legal to listen to the instrumentals without using an actual CD player?

That 'guardian' review is actually from the Observer. Kitty Empire is the lady who gave Elysium 2 stars.

AFAIK there is no Guardian review as yet...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

100,000 may sound like a lot of tickets, but on a 23 date arena tour it isn't. That's just over 4000 per venue.

They've sold 16,000 in the o2 alone. So I suspect the number is quite a bit higher than that - likely over 200,000.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

That moment on Will-o-the-wisp where the analogue synths filter sweep upward in the intro and then the kick drum comes in is just thrilling. Pure magic. It's moments like that when you realise what a great match Stuart Price is with the PSB's. I'd be very happy if they never worked with another prod...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Well. I am blown away. Minus 'wedding in Berlin', which is utter tripe, this is one of their best albums - right up there with the Imperial phase + Yes / Electric Will-o-the-wisp is mind bending. I'm on my 5th listen and while it was astonishing on first listen it keeps growing. Every listen I enjoy...

It's so great to see them in a video again.

Made me feel a touch emotional!
