'What Have I Done to Deserve This?' debuts on the U.S. singles chart. On the same day, the Boys appear on Top of the Pops, performing 'Always on My Mind.'
Chris and Neil perform three songs live with Electronic at London's Wembley Hall.
They wind up their DiscoVery tour in São Paulo, Brazil.
Neil sits down in the upstairs living room of his London home with Chris Heath for a lengthy interview that appears in the February 2008 issue of the PSB Fan Club magazine Literally. (Chris—Lowe, that is—arrives at the house just as the interview is about to begin but, after making tea and sandwiches, he heads downstairs so as not to eavesdrop.)
The Pet Shop Boys perform in Münster, Germany.
After working on a new track titled 'A Dream,' they start on another new song, 'Hold On,' based on the chord progression of Handel's 'Eternal Source of Light Divine.' Afterwards they have dinner at a Chinese restaurant.
This evening they perform in Johannesburg, the first of three shows in South Africa, and their first ever in that nation. In fact, it's their first-ever concert on the entire continent of Africa. (The Boys have now performed on every continent except Antarctica.)
