How many times have you seen the Pet Shop Boys perform live, in person?
So far I've seen them perform live, in person, five times, during their:
- Nightlife Tour in 1999,
- Fundamental Tour in 2006,
- Pandemonium Tour in 2009,
- Electric Tour in 2013, and
- Super Tour in 2016.
I also had tickets for their local date on the 2002 Release Tour. But, in a horrible twist of fate, my father passed away, and his funeral, more than 2,000 miles away, happened to be on the same day as the show. I could hardly ask my family to postpone Daddy's funeral just so I could attend a concert. So I flew off to the funeral and its associated familial duties, leaving my partner George to attend the concert with a good friend of ours in my stead.
And, wouldn't you know it, the 2002 Release show hasn't been documented on video release (unlike the Nightlife, Fundamental, and Pandemonium Tours). I guess I was just fated never to see it.
