Lol I loved the way Neil juggled now 3 different ways of singing "In a West End town, a dead end world the East End boys and West End girls", including a new one at 2:08 :D.

Nice new version of West End Girls. I feel like they are being creative over stuff they already did.

Fantastic version. And great to know that they have the ability and desire to create and record music under these conditions. It bodes well.
Woof.

It's great that they performed for such an event under this conditions and that many fans seems to like this new West End Girls version.

I have to admit I don't like it at all, but maybe it grows on me. :)

Simply great version. I would of course have liked more but there was a lot of care and thought in both presentation and the re-recording, which shows attention to detail. Seeing Chris' back is classic Lowe, loved it.

It was worth staying up till 3am for the premiere of this great new version. I cracked open a single beer at 2am after a non-drinking Sunday. I enjoyed most of the preceeding performances and cultural essays too from 1am. The Boys kept their cool for this but in their own way were wishing us a happy Pride - just without smiling and doing a thumbs up!

it has to be West End Girls, its their most successful American single.(someone will prove me wrong). This was aimed at an American audience even-though the world could watch.

Yeah, I admit, it was good.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.
