Pet Shop Boys Play Filllmore Miami Beach on September 9

Earlier this year, the publicity machine known as PETA decided they'd get their name in the papers again by requesting the Pet Shop Boys change their name to the Rescue Shelter Boys. No really, they did. The request was respectfully declined, which I'm sure was a crushing blow to animal rights activists across the world. Now, after standing up to PETA, the synth-pop masterminds have announced a new tour with a September 9 date at the Fillmore  Miami Beach. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe are touring in support of their 10th studio album "Yes" and are doing something interesting on their Myspace page. If you feel like you've got the chops, you can use the application GoMix to remix some of their songs. If you're feeling a little less creative, hit up their website to download some remixes, or head over to Live Nation to buy tickets starting on June 12.
