Venue change for Mainz show
26 April 2017

Pet Shop Boys’ Mainz show on June 28th 2017 moves venue from Zitadelle to HALLE 45. 

With an earlier curfew than expected announced at the Zitadelle, the promoter has decided to move the show from the Zitadelle open air venue to the indoor Halle 45 to guarantee that the full production is not compromised.

Halle 45 is located about 2.5 km driving distance from Zitadelle and the show will start at 8:30 pm.

Tickets for the Zitadelle will remain valid for Halle 45. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this change of venue.

On This Day


After their American record company expresses doubts whether Nightlife has any tracks that would make a good single in the U.S., the Pet Shop Boys begin writing 'Happiness Is an Option'—which, as it turns out, is never released as a single anyway.


The Boys perform in Bergen, Norway.


Still in New York City, Neil and Chris enjoy an evening with Danny Tenaglia at Brooklyn's Output dance club. (The next day, Chris enthuses on their website that they 'just had the BEST time' there.)


New in U.K. record stores today: 'Perfect Motion' - Jon Savage's Secret History of Second-Wave Psychedelia 1988-93, a vinyl-only various-artists compilation that includes the Extended Version of the PSB track 'The Sound of the Atom Splitting.'

I came across a cache of old photos
and invitations to teenage parties
'Dress in white' one said with quotations
from someone's wife, a famous writer
in the nineteen-twenties
When you're young you find inspiration
in anyone who's ever gone
and opened up a closing door

I don’t know what you want but I can’t give it any more
