The Club is closed but the magazine continues.
It's that time of the year (when The Pogues complain that they were kept off the Christmas number one in 1987 by "Always on my mind"...).
Pet Shop Boys announce three tour dates in South Africa.
"Always On My Mind" by PSB is number one in the BBC Music song covers poll.
An extra Electric date in Uruguay next month.
Two hats from the Electric tour are being auctioned on eBay to benefit the charity, St Mungo's Broadway, which helps the homeless. In the tour wardrobe there were two of each hat and these are the back-up ones. The Boy cap is signed by Chris and the mirrored bowler is signed by Neil. Go to the link below for more details and to place a bid.
1982: Produced by Bobby 'O' Orlando, the Flirts' 'Passion'—which ends up having a major influence on PSB—is released.
1998: The Boys perform the first of two concerts in St. Petersburg, Russia.
1999: Kylie Minogue records her vocals for 'In Denial.'
2010: To help celebrate 30 years of the BRIT Awards, Mastercard sponsors a competition for a member of the British public to win a live performance by an award-winner in the living room of his or her own home. The winner, Lorraine Sands of Twickenham, is surprised when the Pet Shop Boys appear today at her doorstep. They then recreate a portion of their recent Pandemonium Tour show in her living room, complete with backup singers and dancers. They perform four songs: 'Suburbia,' 'All Over the World,' 'It's a Sin,' and 'West End Girls.' Afterward Neil describes the experience as 'surreal but very good fun.'
2011: While visiting Berlin, Chris and Neil write a new song called 'Multi-Kulti,' inspired by German chancellor Angela Merkel. (This song, still unreleased, is later retitled 'About Time.')
2012: Neil re-records the vocal for 'Leaving.'
2014: An online report states that Neil has written a soon-to-be-published autobiography titled Pedipedia that, among other things, describes something of a feud between David Bowie and Elton John. The story is almost immediately refuted by a source within the PSB organization, and the report is quickly taken down.
