CON­NOIS­SEURS OF AU­RAL PLEA­SURES WON’T WANT TO MISS SYN­TH­POP LEG­ENDS THE PET SHOP BOYS THIS MONTH AT THEIR ONE-NIGHT-ONLY BLOWOUT SHOW

Hong Kong Tatler - - Hot Ticket -

Still top­ping the charts after three decades of mu­sic, the Pet Shop Boys— Neil Ten­nant and Chris Lowe—will be play­ing in Hong Kong on Septem­ber 26 be­fore wrap­ping up the Asian leg of their sum­mer tour in Tai­wan. Fol­low­ing the de­but of their 45-minute con­cep­tual work A Man From the Fu­ture, which pre­miered on the BBC Proms in July, the syn­th­pop duo tra­versed Europe be­fore land­ing in Asia.

As the most suc­cess­ful duo in Bri­tish mu­sic his­tory, the Pet Shop Boys are well known for their avant-garde aes­thet­ics and de­fi­ant, con­trary re­sponses to popular mu­sic trends—favour­ing dance and disco when rock ’n’ roll was on the rise, for in­stance. Ex­pect hits from their ex­cit­ing and widely ac­claimed al­bum Elec­tric, re­leased last sum­mer, and clas­sic favourites such as West End Girls and Be­ing Bor­ing. Septem­ber 26; Asi­a­worldExpo; $980–1,280 from HKTICKETING.COM
