EIGHTIES pop superstars the Pet Shop Boys are to perform a one-off gig at the Hammersmith Apollo in aid of Mencap.
The legendary dance-pop duo will be presenting a one-off UK theatre performance of their Pandemonium show on December 8, which has toured the world and was a huge hit at this year’s Glastonbury Festival and at the O2 Arena last year.
They will also be joined by a number of support acts. All proceeds from the night will go to the learning disability charity.
Mencap’s Big Noise Session is a new addition to the much-loved Little Noise Sessions, curated and hosted by DJ and Mencap ambassador Jo Whiley.
The Pet Shop Boys, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, said: “We are very happy to support Mencap and look forward to an amazing evening with our last UK Pandemonium show ever.”
Pet Shop Boys have sold well over 50 million records worldwide and have a raft of awards, including three BRIT Awards. Since 1986 they have achieved 22 Top 10 hits in the UK Singles Chart, including four Number Ones.
Mencap ambassador Jo Whiley said: “We are delighted to have such a stellar line up for Mencap's Big Noise Session, as it makes its London debut. Here’s to another unbelievable gig, at the same time raising money for a fantastic cause."
