The Pet Shop Boys seem to be as in demand as ever. Additional dates for their ‘Electric 2014’ have been added to the American leg of their tour. Returning after last year’s sell out shows across the United States, these dates will feature songs from the duo’s most recent critically acclaimed ‘Electric’ album as well as Pet Shop Boys signature hits.
‘Electric’ was the first Pet Shop Boys studio album that was not released through Parlophone. The 28-year relationship between the duo and the label ended when Pet Shop Boys announced that ‘Electric’ would be released through Kobalt Label Services.
