The Hogmanay Hits Extravaganza

The official press release for this event reads: Pet Shop Boys, those icons of pop, and Paolo Nutini have accepted invitations to appear at this year’s Concert in the Gardens at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay party which promises to be a show-stopping event. The Concert in the Gardens with Pet Shop Boys and Paulo Nutini will be one of the highlights of this year’s Royal Bank Street Party, which takes place in Edinburgh City Centre on 31 December 2006. In addition to the artists playing on the main stage at the Concert in the Gardens there will be another three stages within the arena featuring other live acts from 10pm. Pete Irvine, director of Unique Events, said: ”We are finalising a brilliant programme for Hogmanay this year but we are delighted to make a first announcement today of the artists for Concert in the Gardens. Paolo Nutini, Scotland’s new sensation has seen his debut album, These Streets, go platinum. The Pet Shop Boys are one of the most consistently successful artists in pop music. Their album Fundamental has been received as a career high and their new live album, Concrete, is released today, while their live show has been the huge hit of this year’s European festivals and is currently getting rave reviews in the USA. They promise a special Hogmanay Hits Extravaganza and with the excitement of Paolo Nutini, this year’s Concert in the Gardens will be the best yet. Lord Provost, Lesley Hinds of the City of Edinburgh added: “This year’s Edinburgh’s Hogmanay will entertain an audience of 100,000 party goers.
