The Pet Shop Boys’ Electric tour is the focus of the latest installment of Vevo Tour Exposed, which goes behind the lasers, couture black-straw coats, disco-ball hats and irresistible house beats.
“I think it’s our most successful tour ever; the dates all sold out,” Neil Tennant says. “We get a mixture in our audience of people who like electronic music, gay people, people who like ’80s music. So we get this interesting coalition of people in the Pet Shop Boys audience.”
More than 30 years on, the boys are as cutting edge as ever. They’ve finished the North American leg of the Electric tour, which will run until Aug 9, finishing in Skanderborg, Denmark.
