Pet Shop Boys 2020?

Recommended Posts

The festival loves rewarding special guests with a decent slot for the next year and Michael was at the side of the stage...

Must be an outside bet for the legends slot.

I think they have a new album out next year so I hope they do turn up. Their 2010 Other Stage headline slot is up there in my fave Glastonbury moments.

I was wondering while watching Kylie who they could possibly get for next year - they’ve done most of the obvious ones now.  I didn’t like the others that I could think of (eg Robbie) or thought them unlikely to accept anything other than headliner (eg Elton).  Pet Shop Boys is a great shout - they were brilliant in 2010 - and certainly have a catalogue of well know singalongs.

Would be surprising to see someone who’s already played do the legend’s slot. They did play the 30th and 40th anniversaries, however.

My money is on them popping up somewhere and they have enough crowd pleasers to do that slot.

They could pop up somewhere. I would fix eyes to WH headliner or Other Stage opener rather than the Legends slot.

New album and tour next year as well.  Their last few tours have been amazing too.  I’m pretty sure the Killers borrowed their lasers.

Yep. One of my favourite headliners too.  Would have said my favourite ever other stage headliner but after the Chemical Brothers on Saturday night there is some competition for that title.

What a horrific thought.

Would love to have been there to witness your conflicting emotions when Stranger Things Guy Smiley brought the Pet Shop Boys out on Saturday evening.

That's a clever call, very often a minor appearance results in a slot in the following year, from memory there's been a few such circumstances.

You're all making me fear the return of Coldplay with this talk of special guests getting a slot the following year!!

I nearly left. At least they didn't do one of their originals.

Greatest hits tour announced. Could be a perfect legends spot too.

I'm seeing them this weekend, at that Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park thing. Kylie Minogue headlined last year, so is there a pattern?

I hope it's good anyhow. A girl I met at Blue Dot said Pet Shop Boys were one of the worst gigs she's ever been to, but I'm hoping it was just an off day for them...

I don't think they can have an off day. At the end of the day its just two 60ish year old fellas one singing and one on keyboard hence why they always have decent visuals to go with them. All down to if you like them or not.

Well this is exciting news. Got to think they're very likely with those dates. 

Yeah, with those dates I'd be supremely surprised if they didn't appear.
