WITH SPECIAL GUESTS CUT COPY (SIDNEY MYER MUSIC BOWL ONLY), CONFIDENCE MAN & DJ ARTHUR BAKER (SIDNEY MYER MUSIC BOWL & HORDEN PAVILION ONLY)
NEW ORDER, the icons that changed pop music forever, have announced rare Australian dates for 2020, bringing their timeless live show to fans at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Wednesday 11 March, Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Saturday 14 March and a one-off theatre show at Melbourne’s Forum on Sunday 15 March.
Over a career spanning four decades, New Order cemented themselves as one of the world’s most vital bands. Combining guitar-heavy post-punk with masterful use of synths, their seminal music has held them amongst the “most successful and innovative dance acts of all time” (Pitchfork).
Formed by members of Joy Division after the death of singer Ian Curtis in 1980, New Order crafted a distinct, cutting-edge electronic sound that was apparent from the release of their first single, ‘Ceremony’. The next forty years have seen the band combine sensitive and often dark lyrical content with melodic and celebratory electronic production.
The band remains incredibly prolific, collaborating with Iggy Pop, Brandon Flowers and La Roux, and sampled by Rhianna and Kylie Minogue. Nominated for a Grammy and Mercury Prize, with a slew of NME Awards under their belt, New Order has headlined world-class festivals including Reading, Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Glastonbury.
Last in Australia in 2016 performing with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, their four sold out Sydney Opera House performances reached “euphoric heights” according to The Guardian.
New Order secured their place in the pages of music history long ago, and they remain as peerless and essential now as they were then.
