The video itself has been used at least once during the performance promoting Behaviour at Arsenio Hall Show in 1990. Only the visuals were shown, while the Pet Shop Boys performed West End girls and So hard with two backing singers (possibly Pam Sheyne and Sylvia Mason-James). There’s an excerpt about this performance in Pet Shop Boys versus America book:
Back at the venue they discuss their forthcoming live appearance on America’s most important chat show, The Tonight Show:
“I don’t know if we shouldn’t do what we normally do,” says Chris. “Be a duo. Otherwise, on-stage you’re going to see a Rastafarian guitarist and we’re going to look like everyone else.”
“We’ve got Trevor and Mark,” points out Neil.
“Yeah,” says Chris, “but that’s not that different. For the Arsenio Hall show we had a scratch video made and banks of video screens and we had our attitude sorted out.”
n addition to the background mix, the abovementioned performance on Arsenio
Hall Show is also available for download.
