On This Day


Neil begins a week-long holiday in Spain, first in Santiago de Compostela—a locale that will provide inspiration for the first verse of 'To Step Aside.'


The Pet Shop Boys perform in Nyon, Switzerland.


The Summer 2010 leg of the Pandemonium Tour comes to the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena.


British singer Amy Winehouse dies at the age of 27. Neil and Chris—who had been falsely rumored back in 2008 to have recorded a James Bond theme with her—issue a statement of sadness at the news on their official website.


A very busy day for the Boys. Following its final rehearsal in the morning, Chris and Neil premiere their new symphonic/electronic work A Man from the Future this evening at the Royal Albert Hall with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Chorus, narrated by Juliet Stevenson. (Also part of the program are other Tennant-Lowe compositions: 'Overture to Performance' and 'Four Songs in A Minor' sung by guest vocalist Chrissie Hynde.) And if all that weren't enough, our musical heroes manage to squeeze in (between the rehearsal and the concert) a recording session at Maida Vale Studios for their appearance the following month on the long-running BBC Radio drama The Archers.

When I’m sitting so close to you
there’s only one thing that I wanna do
but I know what you're likely to say
that I’m going about it the wrong way

We can’t agree about anything
where to go or even where we've been
and I know what you're likely to do
