The British duo will finally hold a concert in Kuala Lumpur for the first time.
Veteran British pop duo Pet Shop Boys will be bringing its brand of electro pop and art spectacle to Kuala Lumpur for the first time on Sept 24 at Stadium Negara.
Formed in London in 1981, the Pet Shop Boys duo Neil Tennant, 60, and Chris Lowe, 54, have transcended the times and albums like Please, Actually, Behaviour, Fundamental and Very are among the British electronica classics.
As a testament of the duo’s consistency, they still remain at the forefront of the electronica scene.
The duo’s latest album Electric, released last year, was put out on the duo’s own label, x2, through Kobalt Label Services. This album, which features a high tempo collection of dance anthems and kaleidoscopic effects, has afforded the duo a well-received global tour and a second spin of dates in this region.
Kuala Lumpur finally finds itself on the Pet Shop Boys current tour diary in September alongside shows in Singapore and Hong Kong. Previously Pet Shops Boys have played in Singapore in 1995 (Discovery tour) and 2002 (Release tour).
For this upcoming tour date in Kuala Lumpur, fans can expect a relentless upfront electronic setlist as well as tunes geared to the Pet Shop Boys’ diehard following.
The scorching singles from Electric and tunes from the underrated record Elysium won’t be ignored. However, catalogue favourites like It’s A Sin, Rent, Domino Dancing, Somewhere, Go West, Always On My Mind and West End Girls still have prominent spots in the duo’s live performances.
Pre-sale tickets for Pet Shop Boys’ concert in Kuala Lumpur go on sale July 10, followed by general sale one week later. More info at www.airasiaredtix.com or www.petshopboys.co.uk.
