Four PSB live performances on Peter’s Pop Show from the 1980s have been released on YouTube and are available to watch at the link below. Pet Shop Boys appeared twice on the cult German TV chart show to perform “Suburbia” and “Opportunities (Let’s make lots of money)” on December 6th, 1986 and “It’s a sin” and “Rent” on December 5th, 1987. Peter's Pop Show was held at Dortmund’s Westfallenhalle from 1984 until 1993 and traditionally aired during Christmas time and on New Years Eve. The show’s eponymous host, Peter Illmann, is more widely known in Germany for his influential 1980s pop TV series “Formel 1”.
