Pet Shop Boys @ London o2, in pictures


Pet Shop Boys isn't as much my cup of Darjeeling as is Depeche Mode - whose Delta Machine concert at the London o2 i attended...and it was amazing! to say the least.  But it still has the 80s spirit to it, or at least the 2nd half of the concert where they performed quite a few of my favourites from Domino Dancing to Surburbia and Opportunities. 

I went on my own.  But i wasn't alone.  There were people of all ages up to their 50s, sizes, dress-styles....and they were loving it.  So i was in good company. 

Epping to Stratford, Stratford to North Greenwich where the o2 is located....nice ride, nice sights.  Fantastic concert, especially when it was amongst the people whom produced the Pet Shop Boys.  They weren't there because it was the 'in-thing', but because they loved it.  That certainly makes it all the more of a great experience as everyone feeds off everyone's spirit.  Good one!

Next stop, Santana at the Wembley Arena in July, and probably Depeche Mode at the o2 again in November!

Keep Rocking!

  1. Looks like I have missed a fun-filled night. I was out of the country when the concert was held. Your shots were sharp and artistically taken. Look forward to more of your concert pictures!

The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Manifesto Against Same-Sex Marriages and Homo-Promotion

My stand against homosexuality is based on the following.  It is a logical, rather than a personal, decision.

Under the slogan, 'the freedom to love', it in principle justifies incestuous, group, etc, marriages.  All it requires is 'consenting adults', without an inquiry into what it means to be an 'adult' in intelligent, moral, and introspective terms.

This in turn encourages a ‘go with your feel’ tendency, which in itself gives rise a myriad of tendencies that go unquestioned.  Right and wrong ceases to matter, and even if something is illegal, one can still view it as society just having its own bias against it, just as it once had a ‘bias’ against homosexuality.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
