Come mid-September, Tampa Bay might become the ultimate New Wave destination.
On Sept. 14, Depeche Mode will perform at the Live Nation Amphitheatre. And it's just been announced that on the eve of that show, Pet Shop Boys will take the stage at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. That's a Friday-Saturday doubleheader featuring two of the most popular and enduring New Wave synth-pop acts of the '80s. (Quick! Someone book New Order or Erasure on Sept. 15!)
The English duo, famous for hits like West End Girls and It's a Sin, will perform at the Mahaffey on Sept. 13. Tickets are $29.50 to $99.50, and they'll go onsale at noon May 4.
