Whether you’ve been a fan since the days of Joy Division or you got into them thanks to the ongoing football tournament popularity of ‘World In Motion’, New Order’s popularity spans generations. And there’s a good reason for that: not only do they have plenty of phenomenal studio material, they’re also an awesome live band.
With sets packed full of danceable pop, chantable anthems, Joy Division throwbacks and much, much more, you don’t want to miss New Order when they’re in town. And that’s exactly where they are this week: the Manchester band are in London for a huge show at the O2 Arena in Greenwich.
Supported by much-hyped Aussie duo Confidence Man, the show is primed to be an intergenerational feast of all things synthpop. New Order’s show is on Friday, September 29 – from doors and tickets to the setlist, here’s everything you need to know.
