ChCh man wins drink with Pet Shop Boys

Tue 27 Mar 2007 In: New Zealand Daily News

9:30PM: ‘g8krasher1', A.K.A. Matt, a new TradeMe member from Christchurch, has won the Pet Shop Boys auction to have a drink with the duo and attend their Auckland concert on Thursday. A flurry of bidding in the last ten minutes pushed the price up from $560 to the closing price of $900, which will benefit the NZ AIDS Foundation's work with the local battle against HIV. The Pet Shop Boys are flying to New Zealand tonight, after finishing their two-week tour of Brazil, Argantina and Chile last night in front of 9,000 people in the Estacion Mapocho in Santiago, Chile. Tickets are still on sale for $89.90 (plus booking fee) for the one-off concert at Auckland's St. James Theatre this Thursday evening. It's the first time the musical stars have played in New Zealand, and they'll travel to Australia to play in Sydney, the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth next week.      Ref: (m)
