Pet Shop Boys & Take That Reveal Tour Set Lists, Chris Lowe Covers New Order's "Subculture"

Today both Take That and Pet Shop Boys revealed their tour set lists on their respective websites, as their first live date together was last night at Sunderland's Stadium Of Light. I don't mind slightly spoiling it for myself, because I won't remember by the time the gig I'm going to rolls around in mid-July. But I'm not reading the full description of the entire show on the That's site.

It does seem annoying that there's what looks to be a full-on Robbie Williams mini-concert tucked into the middle of the show. Guess that was in his contract?

Gosh, he actually sound good. Auto Tune is amazing, isn't it?

    Pet Shop Boys support for Take That.... they were bigger to do it themselves, i love the PSB...would have thought it would have been the other way around...TT suuporting PBS..MMMM?....Robbie Rocked, ....would love to see him solo though rather in Take That, TT were well, OK, i'm not really into boybands, apart form Westlife, and BSB'S, but TT were OK, but seen them once....that's all i prbably will, went with few friends...one had a 30th Birthday....so it was a case of going i suppose,
