Pet Shop Boys
23 June 2023
Pet Shop Boys will play at the M&S Bank Arena Liverpool on 23 June 2023 as part of their first ever greatest hits tour 'Dreamworld: The Greatest Hits Live’.
The tour received outstanding reviews with The Guardian describing the Manchester date as “fabulous”, while The Times said the London show was “clever, stylish, sometimes poignant, often euphoric”, and NME praised the Hull performance, describing it as “a two-hour joyous celebration of their decades of holding pop to a higher standard".
As well as the success of the tour so far, Pet Shop Boys performed a rapturously received headline set last night on The Other Stage at the Glastonbury Festival, closing this year’s 50th Anniversary of the event. The performance is available to watch back on BBC iPlayer here.
