NEW ORDER ANNOUNCES SYDNEY & MELBOURNE HEADLINE SHOWS IN MARCH 2012
It’s no exaggeration to say that New Order are up there with The Beatles and The Velvet Underground as one of the most influential acts of all time. Future Entertainment are delighted to announce that the band are playing two very special sideshows at The Festival Hall, Melbourne (March 1) and The Hordern Pavilion, Sydney (March 7) as part of their Future Music Festival co-headlining tour.
Their story is now mythology and familiar to anyone who has seen the movie 24 Hour Party People. Formed from the ashes of tragedy, New Order paid tribute to their previous incarnation, Joy Division, while redefining the musical landscape in the process and creating a sound the world had never heard before. Effortlessly melding rock and pop with electronic dance music, the lads (and one lady) from Manchester went on to become one of the biggest bands of all time, releasing hit after hit that consistently pushed the boundaries and spawned legions of lesser imitators.
Having recently got back on the road after a very long break the accolades have been coming in thick and fast, the newly reformed band are still top of their game. Their December headlining slots in Europe and South America all instantly sold out and were met with rapturous approval.
