Loved the Pet Shop Boys article in the latest edition of your fine publication, particularly as I’m a huge Frankie Goes To Hollywood fan/collector and Neil mentioning their appearance at the Trevor Horn tribute show in 2004. The band went on to do a few live shows around Europe in 2005 including Northampton Balloon Festival (UK), Pili Pili festival (Belgium) and others. 2005 promised a full European tour but sadly all dates were cancelled due to behind the scene issues and the promise of new FGTH material, after a 20+ year wait, was not to be.
Mark headed back to the USA and Paul to New Zealand. Ped and Paul are currently working on some things together. The ‘kid singer’ Neil referred to was Ryan Molloy who has had huge success as West End in roles such as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys. On the subject of former FGTH members fans may find it interesting to know that Brian ‘Nasher’ Nash has his third solo album (A Lo Minimo) due out this year sometime.
