Pet Shop Boys Announce UK Tour Dates For June 2023
Pet Shop Boys have announced details of their summer 2023 UK arena tour.
Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, who headlined The Other Stage at Glastonbury 2022 last weekend, will continue their ‘Dreamworld: The Greatest Hits Live’ tour next year.
The new tour dates will kick off with a show at London’s OVO Arena Wembley on June 17, 2023, with dates following in Aberdeen, Liverpool and Leeds.
Tickets for these shows are on sale now. You can see details of Pet Shop Boys’ newly announced 2023 UK tour dates below.
Pet Shop Boys were joined on stage at Glastonbury on Sunday night, June 26, by Years & Years’ Olly Alexander, with the two artists performing Dreamland together. Earlier in the day, Alexander covered the Pet Shop Boys’ It’s A Sin during Years & Years’ set on The Other Stage.
During his own set, Alexander thanked the crowd for welcoming him with such open arms, saying: “I don’t want this to end, ever, I’m going to remember this for the rest of my life.”
Back in March, Pet Shop Boys joined forces with Soft Cell to release the joint single Purple Zone. The song was originally intended to be remixed by Pet Shop Boys until it morphed into a full collaboration, which Soft Cell’s David Ball has labelled as “probably our finest pop moment since the early 1980s”.
“Working with the Pet Shop Boys was a pleasure, and this track is the perfect combination of us and them,” Soft Cell’s Marc Almond added, while Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe said: “We are thrilled to collaborate with such an inspirational duo as Soft Cell on this gorgeous song.”

17 June – OVO Arena Wembley, London
