NEW ORDER 9:30pm • HarbourFlap Stage


Formed from the ashes of Joy Division in 1980, New Order may well be the most influential band of the past 35 years. Best known for their 1983 anthem Blue Monday, the biggest selling 12” of all time, the band blurred the line between post-punk and electronic music, and were at the forefront of Manchester’s rise to become the centre of the musical world in the late 80s and early 90s. Touring in support of new album, Music Complete, they’re still one of the best live acts around.
