Songs That the Pet Shop Boys Have Performed Live

Note: This table does not include performances of the entire Battleship Potemkin score. It does, however, include individual selections from Potemkin if they were performed outside the context of the full score. Nor does this list draw upon live TV appearances where the Boys performed just one or two songs. The 2009 Pandemonium Tour included brief segments of certain songs "mashed up" with other songs. If lyrics/vocals from those songs were used, then I display them in the following table using the color code above. If, however, no lyrics/vocals from those songs were used, then I don't cite them in the table itself, although I do make note of them in the Pandemonium Tour setlist following the table. The 2022 Dreamworld Tour information is still tentative, based on only some shows of a tour that's still under way at this time; I will make any necessary adjustments as other shows on the tour take place. (Note: "2016-17 Super Tour" below includes the 2016 Royal Opera House shows.)

The Tour Setlists

Note: Songs that the Pet Shop Boys performed at every date of the tour are listed in ordinary black text, whereas songs that they performed at only some dates of the tour appear in red text. The songs that were performed at every date are listed in the order in which they were most often performed in the show, but the songs performed at only some dates are listed in order only if I know it. If the order changed frequently or if I simply don't know the order, those songs are grouped together at the end. Please note that setlist orders do change, so the following lists and orders should certainly not be taken as "absolute." This is especially true for the Uni/Release Tour, where the order of the songs changed significantly between the two legs of the tour.

*"Together" was performed at the Boys' December 8, 2010 charity performance at London's Hammersmith Apollo, which employed the Pandemonium Tour's stage show. It was also included in the Boys' opening set for Take That's 2011 reunion tour, which was otherwise just a subset of the Pandemonium Tour's setlist. For these reasons, I've included "Together" in the Pandemonium Tour's setlist "with an asterisk."

1989 MCMLXXXIX Tour

1991 Performance Tour

1994 DiscoVery Tour

*Note: The rendition of "Paninaro" in the DiscoVery shows appears to represent a "transitional phase" between the original "Paninaro" and "Paninaro '95." The arrangement and instrumentation more closely resembles "Paninaro," but it includes the new lyrics that would be added by Chris for "Paninaro '95." The tracklist on the DiscoVery VHS/DVD itself states "Paninaro," so that's what I'm listing here despite my own inclinations otherwise.

1997 Somewhere Shows

1999 Nightlife Tour

2000 Summer Tour

2002 Uni/Release Tour

2004 Summer/Fall Shows

2006 Fundamental Tour

*On the German, French, and Spanish dates of the tour, Neil respectively sang "We're the Pet Shop Boys" in German as "Wir Sind Die Pet Shop Boys," in French as "Nous sommes les Pet Shop Boys," and in Spanish as "Somos los Pet Shop Boys."

2009-10 Pandemonium Tour

The setlist for this show is complicated by the fact that it includes several medleys, mashups, and brief "allusions" to other songs. Because of the long break between the 2009 and 2010 legs of the tour, I would have been tempted to divide them into two separate tours, calling the latter the "2010 Summer Festival Tour," or something like that. But the format, stage design, and setlists for the two legs were virtually identical, so I'm listing them here as parts of the same tour. Also, since the Boys' opening-act stint as the "special guests" on Take That's 2011 reunion tour was an abbreviated set of "highlights" from the Pandemonium Tour (with the addition of "Together"), I'm not listing it separately here, either.

2013-15 Electric Tour

If a song wasn't performed in the initial, highly preliminary advance show in Veracruz, Mexico on March 22, 2013, I'm not indicating it in red below. But if it was performed there but not on subsequent dates, it does appear in red—that one song being "Go West."

2016 "Inner Sanctum" Royal Opera House Shows (2016 & 2018) & 2016-18 Super Tour

All but one of the songs listed below (the exception being "Winner," which was deleted from the 2018 list) were performed in all of the Royal Opera House shows. Those in red text, however, were performed in most but not all of the Super Tour concerts, although precisely which songs were absent from certain sets varied from one venue to another.

2022 Dreamworld "Greatest Hits" Tour

This list is highly preliminary, based on only some shows of a tour that's still under way. Hence, this cannot be considered a "final" list, and no songs are currently colored in red at this time.
