What’s On: New Order at the O2 Arena, Greenwich

One of Britain’s most successful bands is heading to Greenwich for a one night special show.

New Order have announced their only UK show of 2020, headlining the O2 Arena on October 10 and tickets are already on sale.

Making their debut at the music venue, it will be the first time New Order have performed in London since their critically acclaimed Alexandra Palace show in 2018.

Since the release of their 2015 album Music Complete, the band have continued to play sold out shows the world over.

Rising from the ashes of Joy Division, the enigmatic New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of all time.

While their debut album Movement in 1981 was shadowed by the legacy of Joy Division, going forward the band combined their original post-punk sound with influences from New York’s club scene.

The result was Power, Corruption & Lies in 1983 released by Factory Records.

From this album came the single Blue Monday, which has since become the best-selling 12-inch single of all time.

They went on to release a string of albums before bassist Peter Hook’s departure in 2007.

The band released their critically acclaimed album Music Complete, reaching number 2 in the UK album chart.

The album’s title seems to shine a hue on New Order’s new manifesto, new line-up, newly eclectic sound, reinvigorated in their fourth decade as a unit.
