Pet Shop Boys to headline Sónar Cape Town


The Lumineers, Jill Scott, Foo Fighters and now the Pet Shop Boys… Those are some of the international artists I’ve pencilled into my diary for December. It was announced earlier that the Pet Shop Boys will be headlining Sónar Cape Town Opening Night on thr 15th of December, but don’t worry Jozi peops… They’re all coming here. In fact you’ll get to see them on the 12th of December. Durban readers, you’re even getting a gig for a change J

The gigs will take place at the Nasrec Expo Centre on the 12th and the Good Hope Centre on the 15th. This is followed by a gig in Durban on the 19th.

I’m told their show is abolustely incredible and one of the best you will see live. With 10 studio albums and 50-million album sales to date, you can believe it. And this will be the first time they’re playing in SA, so they’ll definitely bring it.

Belgian brothers 2manydjs will perform their highly anticipated DJ set after Pet Shop Boys’ performance on the Sónar Cape Town Opening Night and at A Taste of Sónar Johannesburg.
