Legendary British electro-pop group Pet Shop Boys bring their sound and their “Super” World Tour to Nashville, their only stop in Tennessee, for one night only at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Andrew Jackson Hall on Friday, November 4, at 8:00 p.m.
Tickets go on sale Friday, May 13, at 10:00 a.m. at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040, and at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick Street, in downtown Nashville.
Pet Shop Boys will perform songs from their storied career as well as their critically acclaimed new album, Super, out now on x2 Records via Kobalt.
Over the last 25 years, Pet Shop Boys have gained a reputation as innovators of the modern live music show. They were among the first to integrate multimedia and theatrical elements into their productions, and they have collaborated with Derek Jarman, Zaha Hadid, and Sam Taylor Johnson. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe formed the band in London in 1981, and they have been crafting infectious EDM-styled pop long before the term EDM existed. Dance music has changed over the years, and musicians have come and gone. Pet Shop Boys, however, continue to reinvent themselves album after album, including their newest collaboration.
Super entered the official U.K. Album Charts at #3, marking the duo’s 16th U.K. Top 10 album to date. The first single, “The Pop Kids,” reached #1 on Billboard’s U.S. Dance Club Charts. The album was written in London and Berlin and features 12 new Tennant/Lowe compositions. Their new single “Twenty-something” will be released on digital and CD formats June 17 with the official video premiering on Univision.com.
The “Super” tour is staged by long-time Pet Shop Boys designer Es Devlin and choreographer Lynne Page and will follow their sold-out residency of four nights at the Royal Opera House in London. The band are collaborating for live music arrangements with Stuart Price, who produced and mixed their latest album along with 2013’s Electric.
Well known for their avant-garde concerts that combine high fashion and technology, don’t miss the opportunity to see the band Vice calls “the best British band ever” and the Guardian hails as “punky, urgent, and laser bright” on their only stop in Tennessee.
