On this day

1987: Chris and Neil are winding up a three-week stint in South London and Clacton filming It Couldn't Happen Here.

1994: The Pet Shop Boys perform in Mexico City for a second night.

2006: Continuing their post-touring vacation, Neil and Chris enjoy an evening as spectators at a Mexican wrestling match at the Monterrey Coliseo.

2009: The Boys perform in Thessaloniki, Greece.

2010: Neil and Chris are interviewed on Matthew Rudd's Q Radio show, during which records by other artists selected by them are also played. The most delightful surprise to this writer? - Bob Lind's big 1966 folk-pop hit 'Elusive Butterfly.'

2011: London department store Fortnum & Mason unveils their 2011 Christmas window decorations. The store's creative director, Paul Symes, tells an interviewer that this year's display is inspired by the Pet Shop Boys' music video for 'What Have I Done to Deserve This?' He points out, 'We’ve been very careful to stay on the glamorous side and not stray into anything seedy.'
