New Order and Pet Shop Boys kicked off their joint North American tour over the weekend. You can see the setlists from their opening night below.

The British synth-pop titans’ tour got underway at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage on Saturday, 17 September following delays due to the COVID pandemic.

The Unity Tour’s revised dates include guest DJ Paul Oakenfold and take in an additional date at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in New York.

New Order opened their set on Saturday with Regret and wrapped with a cover of Joy Division‘s classic song, Love Will Tear Us Apart.

Pet Shop Boys, meanwhile, opened with Surburbia before closing with Being Boring. The duo also played several covers including Gwen McCrae’s You Were Always On My Mind and Sterling Void’s It’s Alright.
