On Friday night (June 16th) Pet Shop Boys played a sold-out concert at the Cirkus in Stockholm and the previous night the first show of their tour in Skein, Norway. The show is an ambitious multi-media production, conceived and designed by theatre designer Es Devlin with choreography by Hakeem Osibudo. Neil and Chris are joined onstage by singers Sylvia Mason-James, Andy Love and Nick Clow and two young dancers, Swan and Nathan Holliday. The song list includes new songs such as "Minimal" and "Integral" alongside older songs such as "Shopping", "Dreaming of the Queen" and "It's a sin". "The Sodom and Gomorrah Show" is already proving to be a favourite with audiences. On the first two dates a couple of semi-acoustic versions on "Home and dry" and "Before" were performed. See the TOUR section for full details of all summer dates.
