Pet Shop Boys today release on DVD and 2-CD their classic concert, “Discovery: Live in Rio 1994”, which is available to purchase now at the link below.

The DVD and CDs document a show very different in feel to the two ground-breaking tours that preceded it in 1989 and 1991. Following on from the release of their albums “Very” and “Disco 2”, Pet Shop Boys decided to focus this two-hour set largely on uplifting songs with a party vibe, taking inspiration from visits to the New York underground house club, the Sound Factory Bar. “Discovery” saw Pet Shop Boys with four dancers, backing singer Katie Kissoon and two Latin percussionists embrace spontaneity in a way they never had before.

A new booklet is packaged with the DVD and CDs, featuring candid on-tour photographs, an interview by Chris Heath conducted during tour rehearsals and an exclusive on-tour diary by Neil Tennant. Full track listings below.

I never knew my father
Berlin 1945
He forced himself onto my mother
All she did was stay alive
Afterwards he gave her vodka
and a Russian cigarette
before he disappeared forever
and left her with one regret

Me, the little mongrel
born at the edge of hell
