This needs a ceremony.

I just can't do it because I know that love will tear us apart, again.

It will be hard to resist the temptation.

I might try for the NYC show. I doubt I'd regret it.

As much as I love New Order, they aren't really the best live act. Let's just say I was underwhelmed when I last saw them live.

They don't like touring, but they do it anyway. On the Finsbury Park DVD, though, Peter Hook and Bernie Sumner are cutting up and having a good time, though.

Ah man, don't tell me that. I was thinking very seriously about catching them in Chicago.

With no Peter Hook, I'll take a pass.

I'm kind of disappointed in that fact.

I saw them at the Hollywood Bowl in '93 when they had their last hits. "X" was the opening and they were great; New Order was "bleh".

Still, I'm thinking about getting tickets for this in Chicago as well. I've seen Morrissey and the Pixies at The Aragon. Might as well relive this part of my youth as well.

Gillian Gilbert and Stephen Morris have a studio in their basement, and they used to hate having to pick up the hundreds of beer bottles that Hook and Sumner would leave around during the course of recording.

I thought Bobby Brown was through with these guys.

Yeah, I saw them when they toured for Technique and wasn't super impressed. Throwing Muses was good, though.


10/5 San Francisco - Oakland Fox Theatre

Rolling Stone apparently doesn't realize that SF and Oakland aren't the same city.

I didn't want them to come back because I thought they might come back as a bug or as a rabbit.

Jake Havechek: With no Peter Hook, I'll take a pass.


Yeah, and there's one too many people in that picture too. Bernie needed to replace Hookie with two people?

But, back in the day, I could listed to New Order all day long

skinink: Orgy does a better version of "Blue Monday".


No, they really don't. Actually it's not that much worse, but call it a cover and not a version, mkay?

Reminds me I kinda feel like watching 24 Hour Party People again.

Haters gonna hate. Hooky has been touring doing Joy Division albums. His relationship with Bernard and the rest of NO is not a good one

"...Sumner's a twat"

I love Hooky, but that's no reason to miss a rare New Order show. They're only doing a handful of dates stateside and it's been a long time since I've seen them.

In!

Are they featuring the dancing chicken?

1987, Redrocks. With Echo and the Bunnymen, Gene Loves Jezebel, and Flesh for Lulu.

Their main sequencer broke and the synths wouldn't synch, so he just stood there on the lip of the stage insulting the crowd for 20 minutes and then they left.

Haven't given them a nickel since.

I wondered that, too. But a quick visit to wiki:

Bernard Sumner - lead vocals, guitar, synthesisers, programming (1980-1993, 1998-2007, 2011-present)

Stephen Morris - drums and percussion, synthesisers, programming (1980-1993, 1998-2007, 2011-present)

Gillian Gilbert - synthesisers, programming, guitars (1980-1993, 1998-2001, 2011-present)

Phil Cunningham - synthesisers, programming, guitars (2001-2007, 2011-present)

Tom Chapman - bass, synthesisers, programming (2011-present)



Dear Jerk: I didn't want them to come back because I thought they might come back as a bug or as a rabbit.

I feel fine and I feel good, I'm feeling like I never should but People in this world, we have no place to go but see them play live!

Hey hope they can coax the drum machine out of retirement and that the guys who are left can handle pushing "play".

They look bored.

I gotta say, I wasn't impressed with them live. I saw them with the Sugarcubes (who pwned) and PIL.

The San Francisco show is at the Oakland Fox theater????


Here's Oakland....Here's San Francisco.....Here's water!!!!!!

It's not the same!!!

The problem is that it's not rock music. It's (and I say this as a fan) clinically made, highly polished electronic music. There's nothing epic, loud or anthemic about it. It's like the difference between a bottle of chateau Cheval Blanc and a 6 pack of beer. One of them is to be sat and savoured for it's complex detail, but when you're going out to party, you take the 6 pack.

The Lightning Seeds are like this. Beautifully made, excellent records, but boring as all hell when live.
 
2012-07-24 10:14:36 AM
So tell me, how does it feel, to know that New Order is touring again.

You know, you're a real 'up' person

Never seen them live other than on video. Pumped Full Of Drugs, a concert videotape filmed in Tokyo. They were not very entertaining. The reserved audience didn't help much either.

I'm listening to Power, Corruption, & Lies right now. Brought all five of the deluxe reissues with me to work this morning. I really want to see them in Chicago.

^This^.

Years ago I saw the Moody Blues at the Concord Pavillion. One of the band members came out and shouted "HELLO SAN FRANCISCO!!!"

From the audience: *crickets*

flaminio: Years ago I saw the Moody Blues at the Concord Pavillion. One of the band members came out and shouted "HELLO SAN FRANCISCO!!!"



i saw the flaming lips + beck tour about a decade ago (beck touring sea change, FLs touring Yoshimi, FLs were Beck's band, it was AWESOME).

they played gammage auditorium, a frank lloyd wright designed art deco playhouse on the Arizona State University campus. Wayne comes out, and he goes, "it's great to be in Salt Lake City." the crowd kinda rumbles a bit, and he cathces himself and goes, "no, I mean, we were in Salt Lake City yesterdya, our van broke down, sorry!" and the crowd kinda rumbles again. he goes, "No, I know this isn't Salt Lake City. We're in......this is.....Phoenix, right?"

(yes, Tempe is par tof the Phoenix metropolis but any self respecting Tempean would shudder at being called a Phoenician). More rumbling.

then Wayne basically admits defeat and then RACE FOR THE PRIZE erupts.

/huge joy division fan.
//likes new order bu their albums are uneven
///never seen them live, but i've seen a ton of glastonbury / benicassim / etc. festivals and they're not good live.
////and no hooky?
