Pop legends Pet Shop Boys headline the Edinburgh Hogmanay Concert in the Gardens’ on Saturday, 31 December.

The duo will welcome the arrival of 2023 with a greatest-hits show performed to an audience gathered in Edinburgh from around the world. Acclaimed as the most successful pop duo in the world, Pet Shop Boys return nine years after they played the sold-out event in 2013.

Pet Shop Boys have toured extensively this year and have seen their music embraced by new generations of music fans around the world. Their Glastonbury headline slot received rave reviews everywhere, including the following: “simply one of the best collections of songs in the whole of pop music” (The Guardian); “a life-affirming, era-straddling set” (The Independent) and “a spectacular, hits-packed showcase, one that underscored that Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe are behind some of Britain’s finest ever pop songs” (Rolling Stone UK).

The Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Concert in the Gardens has presented some of the best live music acts in the world in one of the most spectacular concert settings underneath Edinburgh Castle. This truly is the best view in the house, giving you an unforgettable New Year experience of world-class live music and fireworks.

This year, for the first time ever, audience members will become part of the show with your very own LED wristbands to light up the night and unite everyone for a spectacular moment as we countdown to 2023.

Please note: Tickets are Strictly non-refundable,
exchangeable or transferable.
