NEW ORDER UNEARTHED DEEP CUTS FOR THEIR OPENING SYNTH ENSEMBLE SET AT THE MANCHESTER INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL

NEW ORDER UNEARTHED DEEP CUTS FOR THEIR OPENING SYNTH ENSEMBLE SET AT THE MANCHESTER INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL.

New Order delivered a beautiful and unique performance at old Granada Television Studios in Manchester. This was their first of 5 concerts with a 12-member synthesizer ensemble—which continues July 1st, 6th, 13th and 15th at the Manchester International Festival

The Manchester legends delivered a 15-song set, with the synth players were in two rows of six stacked on top of each other behind the stage—not unlike a modern opera.

Frontman Bernard Sumner made good on his promise of deep cuts, as New Order performed six songs not played live in Decades (Yes, they played that too), performing Joy Division’s Disorder for the first time since 1980, and the very first time ever as New Order.
