Pet Shop Boys "Fundamental" LIVE Sala Palatului Bucuresti Romania

Concertului care trebuia sa fie sustinut pe 19 octombrie a fost amanat din cauza decesului managerului trupei Dainton Connel, a avut loc ieri 25 noiembrie 2007 la Sala Palatului din Bucuresti. Concertul a incheiat turneul care promoveaza albumul "Fundamental", durand aproape 2 ore cu o sonorizare relativ buna, dar mai ales cu o coregrafie deosebita. Cei doi, Neil Tennant si Cris Lowe au bucurat un public cu o medie de varsta peste 30 ani cu hituri "Go West", "Always on My Mind", "It's A Sin" iar pe final s-a auzit: "multumesc" si "we are still Pet Shop Boys". Discography

Pet Shop Boys are seen as significant figures in gay culture for such songs as "Can you forgive her?", "It's a sin" (for which gay director Derek Jarman produced the video), "New York City Boy" and their cover of Village People's "Go West". They have written a song about a young male fan spending a night with a rapper, based on Eminem, called "The night I fell in love" and a song about coming out, "Metamorphosis". Their 1990s single "Being boring" dealt with the gay experience and the devastation wrought by the AIDS crisis; the song (and its supporting video, filmed by Bruce Weber), remains one of their most popular. However, Neil Tennant has stated many times that his lyrics are not specifically gay. Many of their songs are written from an ambiguous view point that can be taken any way the listener perceives it, and this goes some way to explain why a large segment of their die-hard fans are heterosexual.
Pet Shop Boys have performed and worked with many artists considered to be gay and bisexual icons such as Elton John, Liza Minnelli, Dusty Springfield, Bananarama, Boy George, Kylie Minogue and Madonna. Pet Shop Boys attempted to organise and perform in a planned 2001 tour of out gay musicians, entitled 'Wotapalava'. However, the plans were later put on hold and the idea seems to have been discarded.
