Is it too much to hope that the Unity tour is brought together for New Order's gigs this week.

A quick rendition of 'Getting Away with It' at the Piece Hall in Halifax would go down very well thank you very much.

Gillian Gilbert doesn’t rule out a UK tour in this interview

New Order like to play three nights and have a couple of days off, we don’t like doing like what the Pet Shop Boys are doing, but we thought, ‘Let’s have a go and see how it goes’.
What does she mean by that?

I was flummoxed bu that also but my reading of it is that New Order don’t like to do long running tours that cover multiple cities like Dreamworld for example. They seem to prefer short bursts of activity and enjoy big gaps in between.

Having been to see them tonight it will be interesting to see how New Order fair playing with a double headliner.

As much as some of their songs have massive historic appeal, they aren’t a patch on PSB live. Even more so if PSB do a ‘greatest hits’ show with a heavily dance oriented set.

NO were very New Order tonight. I know i’m talking to the converted but all I could imagine was that I was in North America and that after a short break the ‘headliners’ were coming on.

Still when you home 20 mins after the last chord of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ that’s a great thing to celebrate.

The middle section of last night's gig would go down perfectly with people turning up to see PSB. From Be A Rebel all the way up to Plastic... pretty much "banging with lasers". The opening section (my favourite bit of the night) might disappoint... full on guitar band sound (with high "indie rock" energy levels for, let's face it, what is an, er, ageing band). Closing encore of Joy Division classics might be a surprise for some, but who could complain?

How was Barney's vocals last night?

He was sounding really bad I thought in the recent live from Ally Pally clips they released ... hopefully some improvement?!

Often out of tune. Often out of time. He’s been like that for 40 years!

😹

My other half said he was almost not shit. She also said it was a great gig. That’s New Order live… even when they’re really good, you never go home praising the vocals. It was a great set last night, very glad we went.

On the performance last night would you have NO or PSB headlining?

The audience last night didn't seem very PSB - lots of 'blokes' in groups/black t-shirts (myself included). It would be interesting to know the split of fans who have bought tickets for the Unity tour. Would PSB fans enjoy 'UItraviolence' 'and a Joy Division medley, likewise would the audience last night have enjoyed some camp theatrics?

Hopefully for those with tickets its the middle section last night, a mini-Greatest Hits (with Vocal + lasers) plus a joint encore of Electronic songs.

It was pretty much the recent 'Education, Entertainment, Recreation' Live album note for note (with Bernard slightly more out of tune and fewer songs).

Maybe they will finally do a retrospective boxset like Erasure's highly curated one (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/From_Moscow_to_Mars)? In time for a 3 year Greatest Hits tour that will allegedly start in May 2022?

the erasure one was a terrible mess, with lots missing,
and duplication, and very pricey too.

so no, i hope they don't do one like that.

Agree, too expensive, too limited. The Soft cell or Marc Almond one is a better example.
