Pet Shop Boys

The Pet Shop Boys have been announced as the support act on Take That’s upcoming UK tour, which seems all kinds of wrong.

They don’t seem to mind, though. Messrs Tennant and Lowe said yesterday: “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. We look forward to every night being a huge celebration of pop music”.

Robbie Williams chipped in: “I’m a huge Pet Shop Boys fan so for me it will be an absolute joy to be able to watch them every night”.

Jason Orange added: “I’m flattered and very happy they’ve agreed to do it. They’re so talented; I thought they’d be above it and us”.

Then Gary Barlow said: “Pet Shop Boys was the first CD I ever bought. I’ve followed their whole career and always loved their unique approach to records and live performance. That combined with two lovely people means we’re in for a great tour”.

Mark Owen and Howard Donald said nothing, which I’m taking to mean they hate the Pet Shop Boys.
