From The Guardian newspaper, yesterday: "The Pet Shop Boys were not the first pop artists to stage a theatrical presentation of their music – but while David Bowie, Grace Jones and Pink Floyd had all been there before, Performance was something different. Directed and designed by two cutting-edge opera practitioners (David Alden and David Fielding), it made no attempt to involve or even acknowledge the audience, and pushed the fabulous choreography centre stage. Thirteen years later, the show still looks sumptuous, and its mix of the erotic and the absurd will have you chuckling at the audacity of it all. The DVD features a charmingly self-deprecating commentary from Tennant and Lowe, along with a show segment missing from the previous VHS version." The DVD of "Performance" is now on sale.
