Pet Shop Boys concert
Thursday, September 27 2007, 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Pet Shop Boys are an English synthpop/pop music duo, consisting of Neil Tennant who provides main vocals, keyboards and very occasionally guitar, and Chris Lowe on keyboards and occasionally on vocals.
The longevity of Pet Shop Boys' career is generally attributed to their ability to create melodic pop/dance music with intelligent lyrics and striking style. The duo are one of the most consistently successful duos in pop music, particularly in Europe. Since 1986, they have had 39 top thirty singles in the UK including four number ones: "West End Girls", "It's a Sin", "Always on My Mind" and "Heart". Pet Shop Boys were very successful in the United States in the mid-1980s; however, their mainstream popularity waned by 1988 with the duo's final top 40 single, "Domino Dancing", reaching number 18 on the US pop chart. They have remained commercially successful outside the USA since then.
