Local boy made good

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.stricted view tickets may
