Last month, Pet Shop Boys announced the release on DVD and 2-CD of their Discovery: Live in Rio 1994 concert, recorded towards the end of their 1994 tour of Singapore, Australia and Latin America.

Previously only available on VHS, this is the first time that fans will be able to experience the classic concert on DVD and listen to the audio on CDs. The show was filmed by Brazilian director Roberto Berliner with a local TV crew in December 1994 in front of a wildly enthusiastic Rio audience on PSB’s first visit to Brazil.

The set list includes a mix of classic tracks and contemporary hits including ‘West End girls’, ‘Suburbia’, ‘Go West’, ‘Rent’, ‘Always on my mind’ and ‘Left to my own devices’/‘Rhythm of the night’; a new booklet is included with the DVD and CD packages featuring candid on-tour photographs, an interview by Chris Heath conducted during tour rehearsals and an exclusive on-tour diary by Neil Tennant.Discovery: Live in Rio 1994 is released April 30th and is available to pre-order now.
