Over a career spanning four decades, New Order cemented themselves as one of the world’s most vital bands. Combining guitar-heavy post-punk with masterful use of synths, their seminal music has held them amongst the “most successful and innovative dance acts of all time” (Pitchfork).
Formed by members of Joy Division after the death of singer Ian Curtis in 1980, New Order crafted a distinct, cutting-edge electronic sound that was apparent from the release of their first single, ‘Ceremony’. The next forty years have seen the band combine sensitive and often dark lyrical content with melodic and celebratory electronic production. Their expansive repertoire of acclaimed albums and adored hits include the quintessential tracks ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’, ‘Regret’, ‘Crystal, ‘Plastic’, ‘True Faith’, and ‘Blue Monday’.
New Order’s acclaimed live show has been described as transformative – even hypnotic – featuring jaw-dropping lighting displays and immersive visuals. Nostalgic but never sentimental, their set combines new material with reimagined old favourites, and features a tribute to the enduring legacy of Joy Division, with a setlist that often includes ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ in its encore.
