Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys - Terminal 5

Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys – Terminal 5

To say I love Pet Shop Boys is the understatement of the decade!  Their amazing show, The Electric Tour got a second life in America due to their performance a few weeks ago at Coachella, so the Boys swung back through New York’s Terminal 5 for a sold out show and the final date of their 2014 US tour on April 26, 2014.  The setlist was nearly identical to the first leg of the tour (aside from swapping out “Memory of The Future” off “Elysium” for “Love is a Bourgeois Construct” from “Electric”) but that didn’t stop the show from being as amazing as it was the first time around.  You can read my gushing reviews of their show here (for night one) and here (for night two).

I attended the meet and greet with the band and though they are still not into taking photos (read: please reconsider this for your next tour as a photo with you is what ALL of your fans that attend these meet and greets really want), but I had a great chat with Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe nonetheless.  I was wearing a G-Shirt that features the line “Being politically correct or discreet is lying” from my book “Sketches of Verbal Alchemy” and both Neil and Chris loved it.  They wanted to know more about the book so I gave them my card and I pray that they contact me so I can get them each a copy (or if they are out there reading this, it’s on Amazon.com 🙂

Over the next few days, you’ll be seeing a few videos from the show and for the casual fan, if you think that Pet Shop Boys peaked with their worldwide smash hit “West End Girls,” you are sadly mistaken.  For close to 30 years, they’ve consistently made great albums, b-sides, plays, ballets, videos and tours that prove that the Pet Shop Boys just get better with time.

Pet Shop Boys, I love you… etc.

Speaking of Love Etc., here’s a video of the track from their genius 2009 album “Yes.”

Just press play.

The setlist was:

Axis / One More Chance – Face Like That / Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money) / Love is a Bourgeois Construct / Fugitive / Integral / I Wouldn’t Normally Do This Kind of Thing / Suburbia / I’m Not Scared / Fluorescent / West End Girls / Somewhere / Leaving / Thursday / Love Etc. / I Get Excited (You Get Excited Too) / Rent / Miracles / It’s a Sin / Domino Dancing / Always on My Mind

    Great video! I didn’t go to the show this time around but when I saw them last Sept. at Beacon I thought this was very clever! Glad the show was still amazing and that they were cool at the meet & greet. I did the meet & greet last time but was disappointed that there were no photos allowed, as you know . . .
