The full set list for last night's PSB performance at the Rock 'n' Coke festival in Istanbul was: Home and dry Suburbia Se a vida e Left to my own devices Love comes quickly Domino dancing New York City boy Always on my mind Sexy Northerner Opportunities Love is a catastrophe Where the streets have no name (I can't take my eyes off you) West End girls Go West Being boring It's a sin Neil and Chris were joined on stage by guitarists Mark Refoy and Bic Hayes, percussionist Dawne Adams and programmers Pete Gleadall and Paul Beckett. The show was very well received by an estimated 12,000 people who earlier had watched acts including the Cardigans, Echo & the Bunnymen and Sugarbabes. This was the first major rock festival ever to be held in Turkey. It is expected to become an annual event. A full report of Neil and Chris's Istanbul trip with photos by Chris will be in the next issue of "Literally", due in early November.
Pet Shop Boys have donated a complete set of signed "Catalogue: 1985 – 2012" vinyl albums as well as a signed special limited edition of Neil's book "One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem" to Elton John Aids Foundation charity auction in collaboration with the Evening Standard.
Pet Shop Boys are excited to announce that the Super Tour will be heading to Asia in 2019. The tour has so far seen Neil and Chris perform 90 shows in 25 countries since 2016 and next year will visit Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Osaka before concluding in Bangkok.
