There was no way we could have finished 2012 in a bigger way than providing our headphones and equipment for this massive one-time event. The much loved and immortal Pet Shop Boys delivered an intimate performance with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra for a BBC 2 radio concert. Wearing our headphones, the orchestra listened to the backing track for the songs in order to play with perfect timing and fewer distractions, and thus allowing them to present an enhanced audio performance.
Tickets went on sale where a record 25,000 people applied for the 250 that were available. Clearly signifying it as an event of great import, the lucky few made their way to the intimate event at MediaCityUK in Salford.
The Pet Shop Boys (Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe) played song after song - some being hits from their thirty year long career and some lesser played ones, such as 'It Couldn't Happen Here,' which was played live for the very first time. All were played brilliantly and to rapturous applause. With the added efforts of the Manchester Chamber Choir, computer pioneer, Alan Turing, and special guest Johnny Marr, it was simply described as an 'unforgettable night.'
Watch the once in a lifetime performance of the Pet Shop Boys and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra - we promise you won't be disappointed.
