Pet Shop Boys have announced they will play Aberdeen next summer as part of their critically acclaimed tour Dreamworld: The Greatest Hits Live.

They will play P&J Live in the Granite City on Wednesday, June 21, 2023.

Dreamworld: The Greatest Hits Live tour is Pet Shop Boys’ first ever greatest hits tour and has seen them play shows in the UK and across Europe.

The tour received outstanding reviews with The Guardian describing the Manchester date as “fabulous”, while The Times said the London show was “clever, stylish, sometimes poignant, often euphoric”, and NME praised the Hull performance, describing it as “a two-hour joyous celebration of their decades of holding pop to a higher standard".

As well as the success of the tour so far, Pet Shop Boys performed a rapturously received headline set last night on The Other Stage at the Glastonbury Festival, closing this year’s 50th anniversary of the event. The performance is available to watch back on BBC iPlayer here.

Head of entertainment, exhibitions and marketing at P&J Live Louise Stewart said: “Fresh from playing Glastonbury over the weekend, we are delighted to see the Pet Shop Boys announce their Greatest Hits Tour.

"Last time they played our venue was at the AECC, all the way back in May 1991, so this is a chance for fans to come and enjoy their distinctive sound, who perhaps have never had the opportunity to do so before.

"We know they have a huge following and with their unique style, they will certainly put on quite a show.”
