I think the same sort of set up like the superb PANDEMONIUM tour West End Boy

They've just announced Frankfurt on 31st May and Murcia (Spain).

This has been a very disappointing afternoon so far. Two dates, both of which are festivals, and the Frankfurt concert sounds absolutely awful.

There are still more dates to be announced. Plus, we have the Turing concert.

the last time they played cardiff arena was the Nightlife tour, and it was only about a third full...

so that does seem rather an odd choice

Anyone know, when was the last time they played Belfast?

What's so awful about the Frankfurt concert? It's sound exciting to me. Big dome, full Electric set etc.

I find the idea of having to listen to 150 DJs that I probably don't like at all (I can't stand David Guetta and all the others ones they named in the announcement) for hours quite annoying. Also the crowd is probably going to be horrible - I can't imagine the average person who goes to this kind of DJ / rave / techno event to be a very passionate PSB fan, so probably they'll just "sit through" the PSB set the way I'd simply sit through the DJ sets.

What I'd like to see in Europe are some old-fashioned standard PSB concerts - no other artists, just a simple indoor concert in a small to mid-sized venue. Basically what the two US legs of the Electric tour looked like, that would be great in to have in Europe as well!

Certainly wouldn't like the kind of crowd that came to the Odyssey Arena in Belfast last month, for a DJ Hardwell gig a major incident was declared as dozens of people fell ill due to severe intoxication.

BTW the Odyssey is one of the venues I'd wish to see PSB if they announce a gig there.

Frankfurt sounds horrible to me, too. This whole event rather looks like a big teenage party and Pet Shop Boys don't fit in here at all. Big dome also means you will be quite far from the stage unless you pay a much higher price. I'm also not interested in all those DJ's.

Why don't they do proper concerts anymore?

Couldn't agree with you more,PSB getting too involved in these festivals which have NEVER interested me one bit.
