Barcelona’s Festival Jardins de Pedralbes presents an all-star lineup for Summer 2015, transforming the elegant grounds of Pedralbes into an essential rendez-vous for music lovers all ages from the 8th June-10th July. A spectacular opening night by the Pet Shop Boys set the bar high, and photographer Marcel Pedragosa shares the visual highlights of this epic performance.
The screen in front of the stage presented a visual prelude of singer Neil Tennant and keyboardist Chris Lowe stepping forward into an eternal special effects tunnel.
Lighting adds another dimension to this sensory overload!
Repeating imagery accompanies the Pet Shop Boys on tour, and these pagan horns have fast become one of their classic icons. Their appearance always seems to coincide with fantastical dancers starting to frolic onstage.
Another twist, and the Pet Shop Boys are inside the boxes, whilst simultaneously floating amid a dreamy background.
A tremendous finale brings this show to a rousing climax. It took many of their fans until “It’s a Sin” to get up and dance, but by now the energy is electric and these maestros of music and showmanship have everyone going for it!
