New Order have announced Australian tour dates on the back of their appearance on the Future Music Festival 2012 line-up in March. They will be playing two sideshows, one at the Festival Hall in Melbourne, and one at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney.
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. Formed from the ashes of tragedy, New Order paid tribute to their previous incarnation, Joy Division, 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
Devoted/new/old fans are in for a treat this March as the set list includes each and every classic we all know and love, from Blue Monday, Bizarre Love Triangle and, if you are really lucky, the rumors are that Love Will Tear Us Apart even gets an outing.
