Pet Shop Boys join Take That's tour

Electro-dance icons Pet Shop Boys have been confirmed as the main support act for Take That's forthcoming Progress tour. 

The duo will join the 'Patience' stars for the record-breaking string of dates, which will kick off on May 27 in Sunderland, and said in a statement:

"We look forward to every night being a huge celebration of pop music."

Take That have admitted they're fans of the 'West End Girls' act's music, and Gary Barlow said of their decision to join the tour:

"Pet Shop Boys was the first CD I ever bought."

"I've followed their whole career and always loved their unique approach to records and live performance."

"That combined with two lovely people means we're in for a great tour."
