Nicky Chance-Thompson, Chief Executive of The Piece Hall Trust, which operates The Piece Hall, said: “We are so excited to welcome the brilliant New Order, together with LoneLady to our courtyard, completing our top line up of talent for this summer’s ‘Live at The Piece Hall’ gigs. An iconic band playing an iconic venue – what could be better! We’ve been working hard, behind the scenes, to ensure we can welcome everyone, safely, to our outdoor courtyard area. This will be a gig to remember. As their last album put it, Music Complete.”
The show comes two days before New Order’s huge homecoming gig at Manchester’s Heaton Park on 10 September, the group’s first hometown show in four years with support coming from Hot Chip and Working Men’s Club. “The connection between ourselves and Manchester has played a pivotal role in who we are as a band,” New Order said in a statement. “We have countless memories from across the city, from our early days starting out, and beyond.” New Order’s return to the stage is gathering pace, back in June, their delayed US co-headline tour with fellow electronic indie pop greats Pet Shop Boys was rescheduled to autumn 2022. The two bands cited the “continuing uncertainty caused by the COVID pandemic” when announcing the new dates.
