New Order Announce Spring 2017 U.S. Tour Dates
The band’s current lineup toured the States last year behind their 2015 Music Complete LP, and their spring commitments don’t amount to a complete leg. Instead, they’ll touch down in New York on April 13, a few days before performing their first Coachella set, and play at Radio City Music Hall. Between the festival’s two weekends, they’ve booked a pair of dates in California; on April 18, they’re headed to Santa Barbara, and three days later, they’ll stop in Berkeley for a date at the Greek Theater before returning to Indio and wrapping up during Coachella’s second weekend.
New Order’s latest dates come after a round of shows from former bassist Peter Hook, who’s been busy on a couple of fronts — not only fronting his band the Light, with whom he performed New Order and Joy Division‘s Substance LPs last year, but traveling on a book tour in support of his memoir, Substance: Inside New Order, a nearly 800-page account of his lengthy tenure with the group. New Order’s Music Complete broke the Top 40 upon its arrival in September 2015; shortly after, Hook sued the current lineup, alleging unpaid royalties.
