Pet Shops Boys @ KOKO…

Yesterday afternoon Stuart, me & 1500 other PetHeads packed to the KOKO Club in London’s glitzy Camden Town to watch the Pet Shop Boys perform an exclusive club show to celebrate the release of their brand new album Nonetheless and kick off the 2024 leg of their Dreamworld world tour. 

Great show. Nice chats from Neil too remembering when he worked for Smash Hits and his conversation with George Michael in the same venue (then The Camden Palais) about who would be producer on Careless Whisper. 

It was the test setlist for their upcoming festival date. And probably for the rest of the Dreamworld tour too. 
Three tracks from the new album (the three singles?) is probably not a bad showing. Although there was less recognition in the room of those tracks of course. 
The extended intros and outros of most of tracks had a delightful hi-energy mid-1980s feel. The crowd went wild. 
From a whisper to a scream…
