THE VERY PET SHOP BOYS
The Pet Shop Boys became world-recognized pop stars in 1986 with the huge success of their debut album Please, which featured the chart-topping dance hits "West End Girls" and "(Opportunities) Let's Make Lots of Money." Since then vocalist Neil Tennant and keyboardist Chris Lowe have maintained a steady stream of danceable hits, "crafting some splendidly catchy, intelligent pure pop records," according to Kris Kirk in Melody Maker. The British duo has forged a unique brand of Euro-beat dance music, combining infectious synthesized melodies with intelligent lyrics that have been described as cynical and melancholic. Stephen Holden in the New York Times remarked on the "sophistication" of the Pet Shop Boys, "Whose angular melodies and thoughtful lyrics transcend ordinary dance pop." Harold DeMuir in Creem called their sound "a curious blend of sincerity and archness … [which] manages to sound simultaneously effervescent and morose."

The Very Pet Shop Boys Tribute show is very controlled about their image, however, and take pains to distinguish themselves from other music tribute acts. Their first live tour, in 2015, came after years of planning. “We’re doing it like this because it's what we want and how we want the show to be.

MANMACHINE
The UK and Europe’s Ultimate Kraftwerk tribute band. Animating the audience with live music and a laser performance of Kraftwerk’s electronic dance tunes, this stunning tribute band is dedicated to the German pioneers of synthesizer music who influenced the British scene of the 70’s and 80’s, along with German techno, coming full circle to dance music in the 90’s,
What Kraftwerk have said and produced over three decades of music-making has inspired many of the key players in today’s popular music.

This tribute act is a Van-Gardist concept of stage media art and includes popular Kraftwerk tracks such as The Model, Pocket Calculator, The Robots, Autobahn, Tour de France and Trans Europe Express, all demonstrating that songs about very simple subjects can leave an immensely powerful and striking impression.
