New Order - Education Entertainment Recreation
New Order's release of a special performance, their only UK show of 2018 (November 9) at London's Alexandra Palace.
Sonically spectacular, spanning 2 hours 20 minutes, the show joyously mixed New Order classics, their latest acclaimed album (2015's 'Music Complete') and covers of Joy Division's finest.
Opening with 'Singularity' from 'Music Complete', they eased back in time to 1993's 'Regret', to 'Love Vigilantes' from 1985's 'Low-Life' to 'Ultraviolence from 1983's 'Power, Corruption and Lies'.
Later, their power over the dance floor was proven by sublime performances in the manner of the celebrated extended 12 inch remixes they are synonymous with - on 'True Faith', 'Blue Monday' and 'Temptation' before a three song Joy Division mini set to end.
