This event has been and gone.
New Order are proud to announce their only UK show of 2018. The band will play London’s Alexandra Palace on 9th Nov before heading off on a short tour of South America.
Preceding this show, and almost forty years to the day of Joy Division's TV debut, 'New Order: Decades' will air on Sky Arts on Sat 22nd September at 9pm. Part concert, part documentary, the film follows the band’s preparations in the re-staging of their acclaimed collaboration So It Goes.. with the artist Liam Gillick and the 12-piece synthesiser orchestra that captured the headlines during Manchester International Festival 2017.
With full access to New Order and their collaborators, the film is an unprecedented and intimate celebration of their story and their music. Through personal interviews with the band members and close collaborators including Gillick and art director Peter Saville, 'New Order: Decades' offers a rare chance to enter the band's private world, understand the visual philosophy of their aesthetic and design, and witness their collaborative, creative processes first hand.
One of the most acclaimed and influential bands of the last four decades, New Order pioneered the electronic sound that helped pave the way for the dance/house music explosion at the end of the '80s. The band has had a profound influence on music and is cited by legions of artists as an inspiration. Their classic 'Blue Monday' remains a seminal electronic anthem to this day. The group reformed for a pair of charity gigs in 2011, replacing original bassist Peter Hook with Tom Chapman. The current line-up is Bernard Sumner (vocals, guitar), Stephen Morris (drums), Gillian Gilbert (keyboards, guitar), Phil Cunningham (guitar, keyboards) and Tom Chapman (bass).
