MANILA, Philippines — British synth-pop giants Pet Shop Boys will visit Manila for the first time to perform their hits from a career spanning more than 20 years.

Presented by Ovation Productions,
the concert, entitled “Pet Shop Boys Live”, will be at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on August 6.

The Pet Shop Boys, consisting of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, is promoting their new and soon to be released album “Electric”.

“Electric” is the duo’s 12th studio album produced by Stuart Price (Madonna, Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, Take That, Missy Elliott, The Killers) and features eight new songs, plus one cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Last To Die”.

The album boasts of the singles “Vocal” and “Axis” and completes a collection of dance anthems which the British electro-pop duo is known for.

The three-time Brit Award winners and six-time Grammy nominees have, since 1985, released 42 Top 30 singles and 22 Top 10 hits in the UK Singles Chart, including four number ones: “West End Girls”, “It’s a Sin”, “Always on My Mind” and “Heart”.

    Lost in the high street, where the dogs run
    Roaming suburban boys
    Mother’s got a hairdo to be done
    She says they’re too old for toys
    Stood by the bus stop with a felt pen
    In this suburban hell
    And in the distance a police car
    To break the suburban spell

    Let’s take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can’t hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    Break the window by the town hall
    Listen, the siren screams
    There in the distance, like a roll call
    Of all the suburban dreams

    Let’s take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can’t hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around
    I only wanted something else to do but hang around

    It’s on the front page of the papers
    This is their hour of need
    Where’s a policeman when you need one
    To blame the colour TV?

    Let’s take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can’t hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    Take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can’t hide, run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia

    Run with the dogs tonight
    In Suburbia
    You can’t hide
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
    In Suburbia
