English dance-rock icons New Order are set to deliver some special concerts for their Aussie fans, announcing a pair of east coast concerts.
If you know anything about music history, then you would undoubtedly be aware that New Order have played a pretty huge role within the last few decades.
Having formed in the wake of Joy Division’s untimely end, Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook, Stephen Morris, and Gillian Gilbert quickly became a musical phenomenon, with countless singles and albums soundtracking the ensuing decades, with ‘Blue Monday’ going on to become the best-selling 12″ single of all time.
While Peter Hook would leave the band in 2007, New Order reconvened in 2011, with a handful of new records being released since then, and Aussie tours taking place in 2012 and 2016.
Now, after a few years away, the band are set to make their long-awaited return to Australia in early 2020 for a pair of east coast tour dates.
Kicking off on March 11th, the iconic group will hit up Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion, before heading down to Melbourne on the weekend to play the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on March 14th.
Support for both shows will come from none other than Brisbane electro outfit Confidence Man, while Melbourne fans will also be treated to a special appearance from the great Cut Copy.
Tickets to these shows go on sale from 12pm AEDT on Tuesday, October 15th, and will undoubtedly be in high demand from music-lovers around the country. Check out the full tour details below!
