Album of the Day
Discovery (Live in Rio)
Previously only available on VHS, Pet Shop Boys' DISCOVERY: LIVE IN RIO 1994 captures the synth-pop duo towards the end of their Discovery tour of Singapore, Australia and Latin America as a wildly enthusiastic audience cheered on PSB’s first visit to Brazil. Out today, the DVD and 2-CD release documents a show very different in feel to the ground-breaking tours of 1989 and 1991. The two-hour concert focused on uplifting songs that set a party vibe, with four dancers, backing singer Katie Kissoon and two Latin percussionists. DISCOVERY: LIVE IN RIO 1994 includes such classic hits as “West End Girls,” “Suburbia,” “Being Boring,” “Go West,” “Rent” and “Always On My Mind,” as well as surprising juxtapositions of PSB songs and contemporary hits.
