UK ELECTRIC TOUR 2013
I saw the Pet Shop Boys play live at the Manchester Arena on Thursday 20th June 2013.
It was the sixth time that I had seen them play live and they were all in Manchester.
I arrived at 7.30pm. There was no support act even though the ticket said 'plus special guests'.
Neil and Chris took to the stage at 8.15pm and did about a 100 minute set. Lots of new stuff was played from 'Electric'.
I bought a programme (£15) as a souvenir (I always do).
Neil later said, "Thank you, Manchester. We had such a good time tonight! Neil x"
My favourite tracks played live that night were 'Opportunities (Let's Make Lots Of Money)', 'I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing',
'Suburbia', 'Thursday', 'I Get Excited (You Get Excited Too)/Rent', 'It's A Sin', 'Domino Dancing', 'Go West', 'Always On My Mind' and 'Vocal'.
As usual it was a fantasic performance, Pet Shop Boys never disappoint.
