The British duo Pet Shop Boys This Saturday they closed their tour in Latin America with a lucid show in Bogotá, where they performed all their hits and made Colombians dance to the rhythm of synthesizers.
Before the main show began, the members of Minyo Cumbiero infected the audience with energy, a combination of Colombian and Japanese folklore that activated the attendees who arrived at the Movistar Arena in Bogotá.
Then the background screen of the stage displayed the flag of Ukraine and the stage was decorated with two light poles and on which there was only a synthesizer and a microphone.
The lights went out, Chris Lowe and Neil Tennant came out on stage with masks, the gray lines took over the screen and with ‘Suburbia’ the audience began to sing and jump excitedly.
Tennant took off his mask and began to connect his voice with the audience, who shouted excitedly and jumped to the rhythm of songs like ‘Can you forgive her?’ or ‘Where the streets have no name/I can’t take my eyes off you’, which lit the mood.
After performing ‘So Hard’, the lights went out and the duo left the stage to return just a few moments later on a completely renovated stage, joined by two percussionists and a keyboardist to play ‘Left my own devices’.
“Thank you Bogotá, how good to be here again,” said Tennant, to whom the public responded with a bustle.
Domino dancing marked a before and after in the concert, as the audience completely succumbed and the band left everything on the stage, something that minutes later was complemented by a version of ‘New York City Boy’ that resonated in the Movistar Arena.
The energy reached its peak and never dropped again, it even resonated loudly when ‘Always in my mind’ played, the moment of the night when the most cell phones were picked up to record.
The spirit continued high and the party, already lit with all the fans dancing, soared even more when, in a row, the British duo and their band performed ‘Go west and It’s a sin’.
Then they took a brief break to return and say goodbye with ‘West end girls’ and ‘Being Boring’, amid the applause of fans who did not want the party to end and who claimed that synth-pop is still alive.
