I predict the crowds making up this show will be 90% straight people.
And in other news, Newt Gingrich has just accepted the title of Grand Marshall of next year's Wigstock Festival

Chris Lowe is from Blackpool in England. That CCCP garbage is so weak.

i would go to the NYC show but they want 57 bucks not including surcharge... that being said they usually have very elaborate stage shows, with alot of people they have to pay. still too much $$$.

Rocky only wears the real Che Guevara shit!

If you think $57 is too much for PSB, you really don't need to see them.

Who said it's real Soviet? It's probably a Chinese knockoff.

awesome, thanks for the link!
why does Lady Gaga always look so retarded?

Their "Release" minimal stage show was a misstep, but everything before or since has been worth the loot--they spend it on the production. In spades.

this is going to be worth every penny!!!!

the "Did You See Me Coming?" video is brilliant!

To the person who doesn't want to spend money to see the PSB show: you don't deserve to see their show. Sit in your house and count your cents you loser.

Add more shows in Los Angeles, Vegas and Mexico City... You were always on my mind...

I might be a loser, but I'll be $86 dollars richer after this show! I was thinking.. um lets see.... $30! I remember peter gabriel pulling a similar stunt 5 years ago here in Washington. The place was 10% full, but those that did go paid full price! Who were the losers then?
