To the Greek Theatre in Griffith Park, that is.
On Thursday 24th September we saw the fabulously quirky Pet Shop Boys: Pandemonium on Tour concert.
It was a balmy evening and after an hour with a warmup guest DJ, the dynamic British duo took to the stage to perform a mixture of material from their latest album (which I think is one of their most 'pop' for some time) and solid favourites from their extensive career.

It was almost a Greatest Hits concert and a real crowd pleaser (which is not surprising considering the thousands of gay men in the audience).
I've never seen the Pet Shop Boys in concert before and never been to the Greek Theatre, so it was a doubly special evening.
The Greek Theatre is another open air theatre like the magnificent Hollywood Bowl, but smaller and with less of an incline which means it's not as great when people sit down in front of you for one as short as me, so I spent most of the show on my feet.
But because it is smaller you are naturally closer to the stage and we had great seats.
The concert was amazing. It was quirky, innovative,polished and fun. It seemed like a 'bigger' production than it actually was considering there's just the two of the Pet Shop Boys (who don't really move that much, especially Chris Lowe who stays behind his DJ station for most of the show) and four dancers.
The stage design was excellent and they had these versatile building blocks which allowed the dancers to climb over them, break through them or have them spectacularly burst apart towards the end of the concert.

The dazzling lightshow and mix of audio visual elements also added to the exciting performance.
It was such an entertaining concert, from the music to the fantastic dancers and the cheering crowd.

It was certainly the best concert of the year so far (as Kylie is to come in October).
