Pet Shop Boys tour coming to St. Petersburg

Published:   |   Updated: May 1, 2013 at 11:08 AM

British dance duo Pet Shop Boys will make a stop at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg in September.

Tickets for the Sept. 13 concert will go on sale at noon Saturday through themahaffey.com, Ticketmaster outlets or by calling (727) 893-7832. Prices range from $29.50 to $99.50.

Pet Shop Boys will be heading out on the tour to support their upcoming album “Electric,” which is set for a July release.

“’Electric’ is very much set on the dance floor,” said singer and guitarist Neil Tennant in a statement. “Our latest album often evolves as a response to our previous album and, whereas ‘Elysium’ had a reflective mood, ‘Electric’ is pretty banging!”

The group has charted a record 42 Top 40 singles in the U.K., including the No. 1 hits “West End Girls,” “It’s a Sin,” “Always on My Mind” and “Heart.”
