"28 November 2016

PSB/Johnny Marr show
Very much looking forward to the show on April 2nd with Johnny Marr and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. It's going to be based on the show we did for BBC Radio 2 in Salford in 2012 with Johnny and the BBC Philharmonic plus some other songs. We've been meaning to do a show for the Teenage Cancer Trust for years and we're so pleased it's finally happening. Neil x"

This is simply amazing news. Guess it will be nothing less than pure aural feast, something like they did in Salford back in 2012. Though I guess some non-UK fans who spent a lot of money to attend their Inner Sanctum shows in London now will be disappointed even more than after the first dates of Super Tour. Fingers crossed for decent audio or/and video recording of the show. Even better, for official live album with DVD!
"I think it’s an amazingly good album, I’ve got to be honest with you. It’s one of the albums I feel most proud of. But for people who don’t really know us, and have a sort of an idea about us, ‘Electric’ is more what the Pet Shop Boys are meant to be."
(Neil Tennant, speaking about "Elysium" on the eve of "Electric" release.)

Everyone kept it really quiet. I work there and I didn't know!
What's for supper?

Super Deluxe edition including the Super tour and Electric tour audio. All proceedings should go to charity. DO IT!
Have a look at my taste in music:

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

Good idea to release a new single to piggy-back off the concert and media promotion. Hopefully with better remixes than what we've been getting lately. :?

Same question... anyone know what seats are best there... and more importantly what kind of prices tix will be?

I tried checking in The Who's gig but couldn't find details.

I attended the ROH and really don't mind the Super tour and am now really excited about this new show. I'd never begrudge other PSB fans having the chance to enjoy something just cause I paid more to see it. Just means that I won't be going along to the Super tour as I've already seen it in the best venue possible.

At the end of the day, when the boys tour, whatever show it is, it's a win/win all round :)
