ABOUT NEW ORDER
Rising from the ashes of Joy Division, the enigmatic New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of all time.
While their debut album Movement (1981) was shadowed by the legacy of Joy Division, going forward the band combined their original post-punk sound with influences from New York’s club scene. The result was Power, Corruption & Lies (1983), released on Factory Records. From this album came the single “Blue Monday”, which has since become the best-selling 12-inch single of all time.
They went on to release a string of albums: Low-Life (1985), Brotherhood (1986), Substance (1987), Technique (1989), Republic (1993), Get Ready (2001), and Waiting for the Sirens’ Call (2005) before Peter Hook’s departure in 2007.
In 2015, the band released their critically acclaimed album Music Complete, reaching #2 in the UK album chart. The album’s title seems to shine a hue on New Order’s new manifesto: new line-up, newly eclectic sound, reinvigorated in their fourth decade as a unit.
New Order performed as part of Manchester International Festival 2017 for a series of unique shows in collaboration with Liam Gillick, conducted by Joe Duddell and curated by Dave Haslam and Mark Beasley. These shows were such a success, they were taken to Turin and Vienna in May 2018 to further great acclaim.
Continuing to play sold out shows the world over, recent live dates have seen them headline a four night residency at The Fillmore Miami where January 15 was declared forever New Order Day in the City of Miami Beach.
ABOUT PET SHOP BOYS
Pet Shop Boys recently released their fourteenth studio LP, Hotspot, via x2 Records/Kobalt to critical acclaim. The album reached #3 in the UK, German and Spanish albums chart and #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, making it the fourth Pet Shop Boys album to accomplish this. Hotspot is the third in a series of albums produced by Stuart Price (following 2016’s Super and 2013’s Electric.) Watch the video for “Monkey business” here.
Pet Shop Boys, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, are the most successful pop music duo in UK history and have sold over 50 million records worldwide since they emerged in the UK in 1985 with their worldwide number one single, “West End Girls”. They are three-time Brit Award recipients and six-time Grammy nominees and have also been acclaimed for their innovative and stylish tour productions on which they have collaborated with artists and directors as diverse as Derek Jarman, Zaha Hadid, Sam Taylor-Johnson and Es Devlin. In 2016 and 2018 they played four-night residencies at the Royal Opera House in London. Their greatest hits tour – Dreamworld: The Greatest Hits Live – opens on Friday, May 1 at Berlin’s Mercedes Benz Arena, and will see Pet Shop Boys perform at arenas across Europe and the UK in May/June/July.
