Pet Shop Boys take out Bad Lieutenant
Pet Shop Boys are very proud to announce that Bad Lieutenant will be performing as very special guests on the forthcoming UK leg of their “Pandemonium” tour.
Bad Lieutenant formed in 2007 with New Order’s Bernard Sumner (guitar and vocals) alongside Phil Cunningham (guitar) and Jake Evans (guitar and vocals). They have recently completed their long awaited debut album “Never Cry Another Tear”. The album features sounds that have helped make New Order such a treasured, innovative force over the past three decades, but also featured is a brand new voice from exotic Macclesfield, Jake Evans. Together, the band has spent over a year near Manchester writing, recording and mixing the album which also features additional musicians including Alex James (Blur) and Stephen Morris (New Order and Joy Division) on several recordings. The live band will include Stephen Morris on drums and Tom Chapman on bass.
Pet Shop Boys’ “Pandemonium” show is designed by Es Devlin who worked on their stunning performance at this year’s BRIT Awards. The scale and complexity of the show has been further increased from their sold out, critically acclaimed summer 2009 concert at London’s O2 Arena. This show is a multi-media performance including an incredible, evolving cubist stage set, amazing projections, stunning choreography and extraordinary costumes. Pet Shop Boys have just returned from a very successful and critically acclaimed tour of North and South America.

December 17 Glasgow SECC
