    02.04.2017; concert

    Pet Shop Boys played a special concert in support of Teenage Cancer Trust. It took place at the Royal Albert Hall, London on April 2nd. They were joined by Johnny Marr and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. "This will be a very special night for us, performing with Johnny Marr and the Royal Philharmonic.” Neil and Chris revealed, “ We have often combined electronics with orchestrations on our records and now we’re going to do this in concert. Johnny has played on many of our albums and it will be a real thrill to have him on stage with us. The Teenage Cancer Trust is a wonderful organisation and we are delighted to be able to take part in this annual series of concerts which helps to fund their essential work.” Proceeds from all tickets sales went to Teenage Cancer Trust.
