Pet Shop Boys to Play Tallinn

18. April 2013

The British pop duo Pet Shop Boys will perform in Estonia on July 5 at the 20th Õllesummer festival.

The group, made up of vocalist Neil Tennart and keyboardist Chris Lowe, last performed in Estonia 13 years ago.

In June, the band will release its 12 studio album, "Electric."

A staple of the British pop scene, Pet Shop Boys performed at the closing ceremony of the London Olympic games in 2012. The group rose to fame in the mid-1980s with hits such as "West End Girls," "It's A Sin," "Go West," "Always on My Mind" and "Domino Dancing."

Õllesummer, translated as "beer summer," is one of Estonia's biggest annual music festivals. It will be held this year from July 3-6 at Tallinn's Song Festival Grounds. Single-day tickets cost 15 euros and three-day tickets 35 euros. Both are available at Piletilevi outlets and Statoil stations.
