The Pet Shop Boys are seen storming classic 80s single 'Left to my own devices' in this exclusive clip from their upcoming Discovery: Live in Rio 1994 DVD/CD release.

Released on 30 April, the package marks the first time fans can watch/hear the legendary show on either format.

Also included is a booklet of behind-the-scenes tour photos and a diary written by Neil Tennant.

"We’re more free-spirited on this tour."

Tennant's band mate Chris Lowe said at the time: “We’re more free-spirited on this tour. We party on down. It’s not a totally choreographed, staged and rehearsed show.

"I suppose it is more rock ‘n’ roll in its attitude. You get to express yourself. And to take your clothes off.”

Neil added: “In the past we were always removed from the audience by theatrical convention. This time we are us onstage.”

'Left to my own devices' reached number four in the UK singles chart when it was released in 1988.

The CD track listing also includes gems like 'Always on my mind', 'West End girls' and 'It's a sin' - the latter recently covered by Years and Years to celebrate frontman Olly Alexander's star turn in hit Channel 4 drama It's a Sin.
