Pet Shop Boy Lowe Battled Cold At Brits

PET SHOP BOYS star CHRIS LOWE nearly didn't make it to Wednesday (18Feb09) night's Brit Awards - after he was knocked down with a bout of flu.
Lowe, along with bandmate Neil Tennant, was honoured at the ceremony with an Outstanding Contribution award in recognition of the duo's 23-year career.
Their explosive performance, along with famous superfans Lady GaGa and The Killers' Brandon Flowers, brought the show at London's Earl's Court to a climax.
But Lowe confesses he had to dose himself up with cold-fighting drugs to ensure he made it to the stage.
He tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "I've spent the last few days going to bed early with half the cold remedies from (British pharmacist) Boots for company.
"I've got the worst cold but there was no way I was going to miss the show."
