Little Boots is to play a one-off gig with Pet Shop Boys in London this July.

Hot Chip and Tom Middleton will also DJ at the gig, which is billed 'U R The Night' and will be held at the Matter venue on July 10.

Organisers are inviting fans to vote on various extras to do with the gig, including what cocktails should be served, what music DJs should play, and details about the warm-up boat party.

Tickets are only available to those who help 'shape the night', as such. Fans can start submitting their ideas from today (May 19) via the event's Facebook page.

Speaking about the gig in a statement, Little Boots said she was a fan of the concept. "It's great that everyone there on the night has been involved in what takes place," she said.

She added: "I'm a big fan of the Pet Shop Boys and really happy to be on a bill with Joe (Goddard) from Hot Chip as he produced some tracks on my upcoming album, including my first ever single. It should be a really fun night."
