Pet Shop Boys announce UK tour
The 'Electric' tour will kick off at London's O2 Arena on June 18th, followed by an appearance at Manchester's MEN Arena on June 20th.
Their latest single Memory of the Future, is set for release on December 31st, and is taken off their 11th studio album Elysium, which was released in September.
The album, recorded in Los Angeles, was produced by Andrew Dawson, who is known for frequently working with rapper Kanye West.
The Pet Shop Boys toldNME: "We wanted to make this album in a different environment. Despite frequent visits there we have never made an album in Los Angeles. Working there with Andrew Dawson has enabled us to make a very fresh-sounding album."
The band have achieved four number one singles since they first announced themselves onto the scene in 1986: West End Girls, It's a Sin, Always on My Mind and Heart, along with three Brit awards and six Grammy nominations.
