New Order

Story by Jack Foley

NEW Order have announced their only UK show of 2018. The band will play London’s Alexandra Palace on November 9, 2018, before heading off on a short tour of South America.

Preceding this show, and almost 40 years to the day of Joy Division’s TV debut, New Order: Decades will air on Sky Arts on Saturday, September 22 at 9pm.

Part concert, part documentary, the film follows the band’s preparations in the re-staging of their acclaimed collaboration So It Goes.. with the artist Liam Gillick and the 12-piece synthesiser orchestra that captured the headlines during Manchester International Festival 2017.

With full access to New Order and their collaborators, the film is an unprecedented and intimate celebration of their story and their music.

Through personal interviews with the band members and close collaborators including Gillick and art director Peter Saville, New Order: Decades offers a rare chance to enter the band’s private world, understand the visual philosophy of their aesthetic and design, and witness their collaborative, creative processes first hand.

Tickets for London go on sale on Friday, September 7 at 9.30am.
