Exciting

But with Simply Red and Westlife on the same bill gonna have to think carefully before parting with cash for this

Also wouldn’t be surprised if they announce more dates at indoor venues next year to promote the new album properly so might hang back till then
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Pet Shop Boys commented: “This is the only UK show we’ll be performing this year so it’s going to be a very special one!”
I'm looking forward to a great setlist. 8)

Status Quo??? Westlife??? Don't think I'll be bothering to travel for this one I'm afraid. It's usually broadcast on the radio isn't it?

I’m not sure, but I don’t think Radio 2 policy is they hold you at gunpoint to watch the other acts..! Not bad price £50 considering

Radio 2 heavily playlist the performing artists on the lead up to these events, so I think it’d be safe to assume a new single premiered late August, album late September/early October. Seems like a half-decent strategic plan is brewing...

God awful venue. Crap sight lines. Very expensive food and drink and god awful sound. Went to Blur at Hyde park (mainly for New Order) and you’re surrounded by loads of non fans and queue over an hour for any sort of drink. I don’t care if the Boys showcase a whole brand new set, I’m not going. Let’s face it though, it’ll be the Super Rock in Rio set won’t it!

Neil said lots of lasers, video and a special guest. But confirmed it isn’t Liza Minnelli and he won’t be wearing an eye patch.

I heard from a friend that Neil was on Radio 2 this morning. Apparently he said it wouldn’t be the Super show, and there’d be old and new songs and special guests.

Can anyone find or corroborate this?
