Legendary British electro-pop duo Pet Shop Boys will return to Israel for the first time in over four years to perform at Park Hayarkon on June 10 as part of Tel Aviv’s Pride Week.

The Super World Tour will see the dynamic duo of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe perform songs from their acclaimed new album Super, as well as classic hits such as “West End Girls,” “It’s a Sin,” “Always on My Mind,” and “Heart.”

The 12 studio albums made since Pet Shop Boys’ 1981 formation “remain an iconic blueprint for hook-heavy pop music that is proudly challenging and political,” according to Electronic Beats magazine.

Over the past 25 years, Pet Shop Boys have gained a reputation as innovators of the modern live music show. On stage, the duo are often clad in futuristic, oversized outfits which evoke the CGI imaginings of videos like “Go West.”

Tennant and Lowe are also icons in the gay community, with tracks like 1990’s “Being Boring,” which addressed the contemporary AIDS epidemic.

The Pet Shop Boys have collaborated with Dusty Springfield, David Bowie, Liza Minelli and Madonna. They also branched out into ballet (The Most Incredible Thing) and a 2005 recasting of landmark Russian silent film Battleship Potemkin’s score.

The first 2,000 tickets to the show will be sold at a special price of NIS 199. After that tickets will range from NIS 250-350.
