Pet Shop Boys will return to the Royal Albert Hall for a special concert in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The three-time Brit Award winners have sold over 50 million records worldwide, scoring 22 Top 10 hits in the UK and will be joined for this Hall show by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and guitar hero Johnny Marr.
Keyboardist Chris Lowe and vocalist Neil Tennant’s cheeky, smart and utterly danceable synth pop has led to a West End musical, an Olympic closing ceremony performance and an Ivor Novello Award. More acclaim followed the release of their 13th album Super in 2016.
Neil and Chris:
‘This will be a very special night for us, performing with Johnny Marr and the Royal Philharmonic. We have often combined electronics with orchestrations on our records and now we’re going to do this in concert. Johnny has played on many of our albums and it will be a real thrill to have him on stage with us. The Teenage Cancer Trust is a wonderful organisation and we are delighted to be able to take part in this annual series of concerts which helps to fund their essential work.’
2017 will be the 17th year of Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, the shows are the charity’s flagship annual fundraiser raising millions to provide specialist care for young people with cancer.
