New Order / Pet Shop Boys
Unity Tour (2020)
One of the concerts I was looking forward to the most this year was The Unity Tour with New Order and the Pet Shop Boys taking the stage at The Mann Center in Philadelphia. Obviously, the Covid-19 pandemic has every public gathering up in the air, but I was hopeful that things might be under control before September 11th when this show was scheduled to take place. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen. The tour has now been officially postponed until September 2021.
I'm disappointed, but I'm also glad that they didn't wait until the last minute to make this announcement. Hopefully, we'll have a functioning government and a real plan to get this pandemic under control next year and the tour will be a big success.
