Editorial Reviews

Filmed on their 1999-2000 Nightlife world tour, Montage is a unique concert film featuring live footage presented simultaneously over layers of backdrop projections and videos. The main concert footage was filmed over two nights in Germany; this was then augmented with material collected from many different sources, including news footage and filmed footage from shows on the American leg of the tour. The film also utilizes the original projections of the show, plus parts of Pet Shop Boys' videos and other films, including a film of a casting session for a video.

The whole film captures not only the unique nature of the "Nightlife" tour, with its stage set designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid, but the innovation that runs through all of Pet Shop Boys' work. Montage is a stunning visual experience with a soundtrack of Pet Shop Boys classics, including many of their hit singles.

Customer Reviews

The sound quality of the DVD is questionable as well.

One last thing, to retour to a previous review, chris lowe has done that for years and that's just the way he is, so i don't think he's going to budge just for you.

For those of you who went to the Nighlife concert a couple of years back, it will bring back lost of great memories.

Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Heres' what you don't get with Pet Shop Boys "Montage-The Nightlife Tour": * no preening, posturing, and star tripping * no self promotion of recent album, stage play, back catalog, merchandise or website * no endless, moronic banter between songs * no tubthumbing or strident sexual politicking.
Here's what you do get: * 111 minutes of soaring, melodic pop music, some of the best made in the past 20 years * innovative stage design and overlapping film imagery that enhances each of the 22 songs * engaging lyrics and charming stage persona of Neil Tennant * a "must have" for fans and a fine introduction to the band for anyone else with an ear for pop music. If all you know about PSB is "West End Girls," their only U.S. #1 from 1986, you may be pleasantly surprised.
Sound and video quality themselves are quite good. Videotape does not merit the Explicit Lyrics Advisory that it's tagged with-there's no objectionable language that I could discern.

Pet Shop Boys release their first DVD package, "Nightlife," based on the duo's 1999/2000 tour. I absolutely adore Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, but the concert overall falls a bit short of its previous tour, "Performance." First off, the live recordings of their hits are top-notch. But the visual presentation leaves a lot to be desired. Neil and Chris's stage presence is almost washed out by the dull clips that accompany their performances. I guess this was supposed to enhance the show, but it was actually distracting. On the plus side, the standouts are the live renditions of "Can You Forgive Her?," the acoustic "Was it Worth it?," and the album track "Only the Wind." Also, the DVD has 3 music videos: "I Don't Know What You Want...," "New York City Boy," and "You Only Tell Me..." All of them are very good and, frankly, more interesting than the concert itself. If you watch all three videos consecutively, you'll have access to a fourth, "For Your Own Good." Alas, I'm sorry to report that that clip is a bit of a snooze, so it's hardly worth the effort. (For all you sound geeks, the concert is in 5.1 surround while the music videos are in Stereo).
So, all in all, the package is a mixed bag. The DVD is well-presented; the music videos are nice, but the concert was rather uneven. I'd have first-time viewers search for the hard-to-get video to "Performance," which is the superior concert and better represents PSB's work. Leave this one to the diehard fans like myself.

This DVD is very well put together.
The sound is excellent: there is a surround sound mix included and it is all very clear. The video comprises a montage (hence the name) of the live gigs, webcasts, swirly computer graphics and the projections that were originally displayed in the gig.
For once a pop artist has been innovative in their DVD: if you're a Pet Shop Boys fan then you *must* own this DVD! Very highly recommended.

Format: DVD
Stunning, simply breathtaking in every way. Visually very exciting, a real treat for fans like me who can't travel long distances to see shows like this. Musically quite adventurous. Many of the songs are performed using different arrangements than the original versions, so it's not like just sitting down and watching promotional videos. I especially like the acoustic portion, and the performance of Young Offender ( I never liked the version on VERY and never listened to the words, which are incredible, so this version is something of a revelation.) This DVD is in stark contrast to PSB's other concert "Somewhere", so if you're expecting lots of backstage footage and a straightforward visual experience, you won't find it here.

Format: DVD
The Pet Shop Boys Montage Tour is a 2001 DVD with live songs played by the group in their 1999/2000 world tour, but almost all songs come from their US and UK venues. The DVD is as good as it could be and portrays the duo from England as one of the most important musicians from Europe.

In fact, both Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, when wigless, look like any chief executive officer from some multinational company; but they are much more than that. They are professional performers who aptly convey to their loyal audience rather simple songs in the very same way they were recorded in the studio, alternating dramatic and profound melodies and lyrics (e.g., "Young Offender"), with joyful ones overflowing with the exhilarating pleasure of living (e.g., "That is the way life is"), and some even which combines joyfulness with seemingly harmless martial overtones (e.g., "Go West").

The backstage projections of slides, and images from films are a show in itself, specially the ones that stupendously backs the song "Young Offender", inquisitive to any one in the audience and at home.

The Pet Shop Boys are backed by the vocals of the so-called "New York City boys", a group of very competent and energetic black singers (and dancers), and by the stunningly beautiful voice of the black female singer Sylvia Hason-James.

The enthusiasm of the whole group radiates to the public and the outcome is sheer ecstasy almost from beginning to end. This DVD is a must both for fans of the band as for any one who, like myself, listened in the radio the songs from the group but never dared to buy anything from them for home audition. I don't feel disappointed in any way. I got what I wanted.

As a minor flip-side, some of the visual effects are sometimes outdated, as if produced some 20 years ago. But in the end, despite not being a fan of the band, I got totally overwhelmed by the sheer intensity and enthusiasm conveyed by the band.
