PET SHOP BOYS Live In Blackpool 16/06/14
« on: June 17, 2014, 04:55:15 PM »
The Pet Shop Boys put on what I can only describe as an incredible performance,I have seen a lot of live acts over the years including previous  performance's by the Pet Shop Boys, but this was by far the best..!

I start my report by thanking the people we met in the ques outside the Winter Gardens and we stood together inside the area in front of the stage, best described as ' The Mosh Pit'  it was seriously hot and very sweaty but wouldn't have missed it for the World..!

The Pet Shop Boys are currently on a promotional tour promoting their new album Electric and they performed 24 songs and a mixture of retro hits.. :thumbup1:

The performance was one of what I would have described of a total sensory experience, visually and musically amazing..


Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe really did give a virtuoso performance last night, the people that attended most certainly ensured that the atmosphere was one that for me personally will forever stay with me..

I hope that you enjoy my images and I will sneak a video in that somebody has taken from the concert, they must have been stood behind me as I could see my arm popping up in the air taking pictures.. :w00t:


They started with this huge screen that had images projected onto it, they perform a few songs from behind the screen, it was realy amazing..














I absolutely loved this screen, very clever with moving objects as they performed..





Chris Lowe from South Shore Blackpool.. :thumbup:



Neil Tennant..
   









The amazing dancers..

 







They also performed Suberbia.. :thumbup1:

The use of lasers was just incredible.. :thumbup1:































This was quite unique, Neil & Chris had these beds that projected images of dancers on them as they performed..brilliant..

















At the end of the performance ticker tape was shot high into the sky.. :tongue_smilie:



Just awesome..!!!!








The audience wanted more and the lads came back out to perform 3 more songs, Go West was my favourite..

















Awesome.. :thumbup1:







Thank you for reading..

The compact camera did you proud, Peter. Some fantastic shots in this report and gig photography is very tricky, as well you know.

Which venue was it? Winter Gardens?

Chris.
