The Pet Shop Boys are coming to Beijing!

The legendary British electro-pop duo are set to perform at the MasterCard Center on August 22.

The three-time Brit Award winners have racked up over 50 million in record sales during a career that spans over 3 decades, making musical history as the Guinness World Records' most successful British duo.

Having left their record label Parlophone back in March after 28 years, the pair will be releasing their latest studio offering on their own label X2.
