Pet Shop Boys Cover Coldplay

At a Russian concert in St. Petersburg this past week, the Pet Shop Boys slipped a mash-uppy 35 second bit of Coldplay's legal minefield of a hit "Viva La Via" into the performance of their own "Domino Dancing."

This rendition was perhaps foreshadowed by Neil Tennant leading the London audience at a Brit Awards after-concert put on by Coldplay in "Viva La Vida's" closing Woah-oh-oh-ohs back in February.

Now, why wasn't this included on the "Did You See Me Coming?" single?

Thanks, XO.

    Can we request that people don't video our show from the front of the audience and then post the results on YouTube?

    It spoils the surprises for people who haven't seen the show yet. (And it must be more enjoyable watching the show NOT through a camera?)

    Neil's gonna be pissed!

    By the way, what is he wearing??
