Message from Neil

In 2004 we asked the composer Torsten Rasch to orchestrate our music for "Battleship Potemkin" after hearing his work, "Mein Herz brennt" ("My heart is on fire"), a cycle of songs inspired by the lyrics of the German rock band Rammstein. This work will be performed for the first time in the UK by the London Philharmonic Orchestra on Sunday, May 31st, in the Royal Festival Hall, London. If you'd like to go, we have an exclusive £10 ticket offer from the London Philharmonic Orchestra Ticket Office on 020 7840 4242. Just quote ‘Pet Shop Boys Offer’ when buying tickets. UPDATE: The London Philharmonic have now informed us that this offer only applies to telephone bookings not online bookings.
