Another tour debut: Decades.

That brings the Unity Tour song pool to 21 tracks:

1963
Academic
Age of Consent
Be a Rebel
Bizarre Love Triangle
Blue Monday
Ceremony
Decades
Guilt is a Useless Emotion
Love Will Tear Us Apart
The Perfect Kiss
Plastic
Regret
Restless
Sub-Culture
Temptation
Transmission
True Faith
Tutti Frutti
Vanishing Point
Your Silent Face


Still nothing that hasn't been in the set in the last few years, but at least the concept of a "tour" allows them to mix it up. I think we're all waiting for a surprise though
Either a new song or something out the bag that hasn't been played since Hooky left. I suspect at this point in the tour - neither of those are likely to happen now

My money is on Crystal as the next one to get swapped in.

Gwen McCrae cover? Well I guess that's technically true, although Elvis was the first to have a hit with it.


Speaking of which, anyone seen the recent Elvis movie where Tom Hanks plays a c**t?
SPOILER ALERT: Elvis dies on the toilet. But also SPOILER ALERT:

And once you've seen the film, watch the Honest Trailer.
And if you like Honest Trailers: remember when we briefy got excited about Wonder Woman 1984 here...until we saw the film? The Honest Trailer for that is absolutely perfect.

I didn't do my research, just copy and paste, but yes it was the first released.

I did, however, notice the Setlist.fm entry didn't acknowledge that Where the Streets have No Name is a cover. So I did add that bit to my post here.

Since it's not completely off topic, do any of you fellow Pet Shop Boys fans have thoughts regarding their setlist?

I personally think 4 cover versions is too many. Always on My Mind and It's Alright are iconic, so deserve to be there. But I would have thought Go West would get the nod over Losing My Mind and Where the Streets have No Name. The latter 2 songs always struck me as being given "the PSB treatment" compared to the inspired versions of AoMM, IA and GW.

I understand the focus on the first 2 album's era, especially as their mainstream profile in the U.S. was far higher at that point than any other. But 7 (8 if you count AoMM) songs out of 19 seems a bit high. I would drop Heart. It may have been a UK #1, but feels like the runt of that period's litter now. There are plenty of tracks since then that did damage to the club charts even if they weren't troubling the pop charts here. And two of my favourite albums by them aren't represented at all (A Red Letter Day from Bilingual and Pandemonium from Yes, at the very least). And I love non-album single Flamboyant.

The last thing I would say is that I held out hope they'd include one of their underappreciated dance/electro oriented tracks that wasn't necessarily a pop hit. I know it was a long shot, but given their touring partners, I thought they might slip one of these beasts in:

Forever in Love

Euroboy

The Resurrectionist

Fugitive

Axis
