PET SHOP BOYS THE SUPER TOUR

Super, the latest studio album from English synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys (comprising, from far left, Chris Lowe and Neil Tennant), has received mostly good reviews, proving the duo have not lost their hit-making touch.

Remarkably, it is their 13th consecutive top 10 studio album in Britain, a run stretching back to their debut record, Please (1986).
