New Order Announce Homecoming Show At Manchester’s Heaton Park
New Order have announced their homecoming show at Manchester’s Heaton Park, with support coming from Hot Chip and Working Men’s Club.
The show, which will take place on the 10th September 2021, will mark the band’s first performance in their hometown in five years.
The band have promised fans that the gig will prove, “a defining moment in their illustrious career” and said in a statement that, “the connection between ourselves and Manchester has played a pivotal role in who we are as a band. We have countless memories from across the city, from our early days starting out, and beyond.”
Tickets went on presale today (8th December), and will be available on general sale on the 9th and 10th December.
To mark the news of their Heaton Park show, New Order also shared that they will be doing another Listening Party on Twitter with Tim Burgess, discussing Music Complete, the band’s 10th – and most recent – studio album, which was released in 2015. New Order and Tim Burgess will be reflecting on the record at 8pm on 15th December.
Elsewhere, New Order have been sharing their podcast, Transmissions: The Definitive Story, which tells the story of Joy Division and New Order, from the origins of Joy Division up to the release of New Order’s 1983 hit, Blue Monday.
The band also announced that they would be releasing their 2018 Alexandra Palace Concert next year, with the live set available on multiple formats. The record is due out in April 2021 and marked New Order’s only live performance that year.
