For the first time in seven years, U.K. post-punk/dance music pioneers New Order will return to North America for a string of shows in October. According to Rolling Stone, the seven-date run kicks off on October 5th in Oakland at the Fox Theatre and hits Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas, New York City, Chicago and Toronto as well.
“We’ve been having such a great time together this year, playing shows all over Europe, and we’re all really excited to be playing America again,” says singer Bernard Sumner, referring to the group’s recent festival dates and sold-out U.K. tour. “We have so many friends and fans there we can’t wait to get back!”
The trek will also mark New Order’s first stateside run without original bassist Peter Hook, who left the band in 2007 and has gone on his own subsequent tours with his backing band, The Light. He was replaced by Tom Chapman.
The group’s last stateside show was back in May 2005 at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom and the Toronto date marks the group’s first concert in Canada since 2001.
