Artist: New Order
Support: DJ Tintin [DJ Set] / Jake Evans
Venue: Manchester Apollo
A typically rainy day in Manchester set the scene for New Order’s return to their home town. The absence of Peter Hook from the band’s line-up was compensated for by the welcome return of Gillian Gilbert on keyboards.
The set list included a range of career spanning classics, many of which were given a subtle contemporary twist to bring them up-to-date and keep them sounding fresh.
Setlist: Elegia / Crystal / Regret / Ceremony / Age of Consent / Love Vigilantes / Here to Stay / Waiting for the Siren’s Call / Bizarre Love Triangle / True Faith / 5-8-6 / The Perfect Kiss / Blue Monday / Temptation // Transmission / Love Will Tear Us Apart.
A series of limited edition screen printed posters were produced to commemorate the tour.
