Newcastle’s own Neil Tennant comes home in September as his band Pet Shop Boys play two special shows at Sage Gateshead as part of their spectacular 2014 Electric tour.

The shows on 2 and 3 September are the first in a run of concerts and special announcements that will celebrate Sage Gateshead’s tenth anniversary year.

Neil said: “It always feels special to come home and perform a show, and the Sage has established itself in the last ten years as one of Europe’s very best venues for all genres of music.”

The show will feature band classics and also new tracks from Electric, the first Pet Shop Boys album to be produced by Stuart Price, the dance music wunderkind behind Madonna’s Confessions on a Dance Floor and club-smashing remixes for The Killers, as well as his own Les Rhythmes Digitales project.

Audiences at Sage Gateshead are guaranteed a world-beating spectacular live show to go with the club-centred sound of Electric, with lighting and set design created in collaboration with award-winning creative director and designer Es Devlin (who has worked with Lady Gaga, Kanye West & Jay Z, Take That and the 2012 Olympics’ Closing Ceremony).
 
The show features extraordinary interactive visuals, original choreography, amazing costumes, a spectacular light and laser show and – of course – lots of hits. To go with the mood of the show, the seats will be taken out of the pit area of Sage Gateshead for dancing.

Ticket prices range from £39.50 – £45 (subject to booking fee). Although both gigs will sell out, contact the Sage for returns on 0191 443 4573

Sage Gateshead 17 May If you didn’t see your local balding but long-haired, ageing prog-rocker on Wednesday night it was because he was at Sage One. Clad in a uniform of black tee-shirts and leather waistcoats an army of early Genesis fans descended on Gateshead to see Steve Hackett.  They weren’t disappointed as the guitarist who played on half a dozen early Genesis studio albums and three live ones turned on the style. As you’d expect from a tour that has already been...
