Pet Shop Boys to visit Edinburgh Playhouse

As Pet Shop Boys get set for four sold-out shows this week at London’s Royal Opera House, the synth-pop superstars have announced they will resume their Super Tour in the UK early next year – which includes a return visit to Edinburgh. 

Firm favourites in this neck of the woods, the electro-pop pairing of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have always gone down a storm on their visits to the Capital.

Indeed, in 2006, atrocious weather conditions led to the cancellation of the dynamic duo’s attempt to headline Edinburgh’s Hogmanay.

The group returned to take care of “unfinished business” in 2013 – and they were simply sensational.

Now, Pet Shop Boys have announced they will hit cities across the UK in February, stopping off at the Edinburgh Playhouse (Feb 22), as well as venues in Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and Bournemouth.

 The Super Tour will see Pet Shop Boys perform songs from their acclaimed new album Super, as well as classic PSB hits and album tracks from over the past 30 years.

The production is based on the Royal Opera House shows staged by designer Es Devlin and choreographer Lynne Page.

 Tickets go on general sale this Friday, July 22nd at 10am via seetickets.com and ticketmaster.co.uk

 There will also be a fan pre-sale for tickets, which starts at 10am on Tuesday, July 19th. To access this presale, fans will need to use the code SUPER to order tickets before the general on sale opens up on Friday July 22nd at 10am

 The Super Tour will visit the following six cities in February 2017:

 Saturday 18th – First Direct Arena, Leeds

Sunday 19th – Manchester Arena, Manchester

Tuesday 21st – Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow

Wednesday 22nd – Playhouse Theatre, Edinburgh

Friday 24th – Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham

Sunday 26th – Bournemouth International Centre, Bournemouth
