It's still somewhat unexpected, however, to find that the key visual reference for their latest, Es Devlin-designed show is Pink Floyd's relentlessly gloomy prog-rock epic The Wall. Happily, where Pink Floyd's wall gradually isolated the band from their audience, the Pet Shop Boys' equivalent was much more fun. The duo initially appeared from doors within it, their heads encased in coloured cubes, and kicked off with their chart-topping 1988 hit, Heart. The set that followed was peppered with new songs, notably Pandemonium, which segued, only partially successfully, into their classic Can You Forgive Her?.
