Full photo gallery of English synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys and opening act the iconic New Order performing at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC, Canada on October 16th, 2022.

This was the first time I have seen either of these bands live and it was a refreshing experience on both fronts.

Hearing New Order performing ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ sent chills down my spine. The group was tight and cohesive and just enjoying every minute of their own performance. I was left in awe.

I wasn’t ever into the bouncy, surreal stylings of Pet Shop Boys but hearing them play ‘Losing My Mind’ and ‘West End Girls’ left it near impossible to stop your toes from tapping and the rhythm to take over. They were artsy to a degree, but much like New Order, they were having fun on their end, which spread through the crowd.

This was just a simply a good time out.
