The internationally-renowned British duo Pet Shop Boys have announced that their Super Tour will be heading to Asia in 2019
With the end of the year approaching, we’re getting curious of the sorts of Hong Kong concerts that we’ll get to see in 2019 – will there be any up-and-coming bedroom pop artists or female-fronted bands? The good news is, British synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys have just announced their Super Tour will add another date to the Asian leg on 28 March, 2019, after their last stunning performance in Hong Kong in 2014. We’re so ready to hear their bouncy new wave tunes.
Pet Shop Boys announce The Super Tour will hit Hong Kong
Formed by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe in 1981, English synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys are undoubtedly one of the most successful groups in UK music history. Since signing to Parlophone Records in 1985, they have achieved forty-two Top 30 singles in the UK. The band has also released thirteen studio albums, which have all made the UK Top 10 and world-wide album charts.
Produced by Stuart Price, Pet Shop Boys’ last album Super, released in 2016, entered the UK albums chart at number 3 and showcased their ever-changing mastery of electronic dance pop. (Those legendary synth beats!) In July 2016 and 2018, Pet Shop Boys played exclusive four-date residencies entitled Inner Sanctum at the Royal Opera House in London, in which The Independent described, “their career has perpetually shown that pop music and high art cannot only co-exist but surpass supposedly superior musical forms.”
Over the past few years, Pet Shop Boys have performed at some of the world’s most prestigious music festivals, including Glastonbury and Latitude in the UK, Roskilde Denmark, Sonar Barcelona, Primavera in Spain, Coachella in the USA and Summer Sonic in Japan. From their classics like West End Girls and It’s A Sin to newfound favourites like The Pop Kids and Axis, we can’t wait to see them perform live in Hong Kong again.
