PET SHOP BOYS!

I have seen them twice! PERFORMANCE & RELEASE

I really hope they come back!

I saw the Eurythmics in a really small place in Manhattan. It was really great and suprised me. It was a great show.

I paid a crapload of money to see Dead Or Alive lipsynch to a backing tape on Halloween, '87. The audience just stood there; we were dumbfounded.

I want to say it was The Palace, in Hollywood, but I'm not exactly sure (if it was The Palace). It may as well have been in the parking lot at Safeway for all the interest the audience had.
