Pet Shop Boys Booked as Supporting Act for Take That's 2011 Tour


Having persuaded the 'West End Girls' hitmakers to join his band's upcoming tour, Robbie Williams says, '... it will be an absolute joy to watch them every night.'

British pop stars Take That have persuaded the Pet Shop Boys to join them as their support act on tour in 2011. Pet Shop Boys Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe will perform a 40-minute set before the "Back For Good" hitmakers take the stage on their European trek.

And singer Robbie Williams can't believe the "West End Girls" hitmakers will be opening the show, because he grew up listening to their albums. He says, "I'm a huge Pet Shop Boys fan so it will be an absolute joy to watch them every night." Williams' bandmate Gary Barlow adds, "I thought they'd be above it, and us."

A statement from the Pet Shop Boys reads, "We are delighted to accept Take That's invitation to be part of their Progress show and tour, which is undoubtedly going to be one of the most exciting events of 2011."
