Considered the most successful duo in United Kingdom music history with over 50 million records sold, British pop duo The Pet Shop Boys will be taking their act to Israel this summer where they will play a concert at Tel Aviv’s Nokia Arena on June 23rd.

Their appearance this summer will continue the momentum enjoyed by Israel in recent months which has seen a number of first-rate artists performing in the Jewish state including Paul McCartney, Morrissey and former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown, all who performed in Tel Aviv. Leonard Cohen is scheduled to perform in September, and Madonna is reportedly planning a stop in the city as part of her Sticky and Sweet tour.

Pepsi has agreed to sponsor the Pet Shop Boys concert event, which will take place under the umbrella of the "Pepsi Max Music Show," which last year brought British rap group The Streets to Israel.

It will be the duo’s third performance in the Jewish state.

Known in the 1980s for such hits as “West End Girls”, and “Always on My Mind”, the electronic dance music duo, consisting of Neil Tennant, who provides main vocals, keyboards and occasional guitar, and Chris Lowe on keyboards, have always won three Brit Awards, and have received six Grammy nominations.

At the 2009 BRIT Awards, Pet Shop Boys received an award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. The band's eleventh studio album, titled “Electric” was released in September 2012.

Tennant and Lowe will be performing in Tel Aviv as part of their world tour in honor of their new album which will be released in June.

This will be the legendary pop group's third visit to Israel. Their last time in the Holy Land was four years ago at Tel Aviv's Exhibition Grounds, a performance that garnered high praise by critics.

Tickets for the Tel Aviv concert are on sale for between of NIS 249-599 (about $70-165).
