Pet Shop Boys Look Forward To Fascism Failing In Russia So They Can Return For The Fans

Pet Shop Boys have vowed never to return to Russia until Fascism is dead.

Pet Shop Boys last performed in Russia on 8 December 2016 in Moscow on The Super Tour. They have also played Russia in 2013, 2012, 2009, 2005 and 1998.

In a statement, Pet Shop Boys said, “In 2009 we started our Pandemonium world tour in St Petersburg. We’ve visited Russia many times and written songs with Russian themes and influences. Now it is inconceivable that we can visit or perform there. But we look forward to the day when fascism fails in Russia, criminal politicians face justice, truth is told, neighbouring countries aren’t invaded or threatened and a new Russia is born. I hope we’ll still be around to see that”.

Pet Shop Boys are in their ‘Dreamworld – The Greatest Hits Live’ tour in Europe.
