Like the Easter Bunny himself, New Order only comes through once a year or so, leaving delicious, sweet electropop hidden behind the shrubbery and kitchen tables and church bake sale tables of North America, just as winter turns to spring, and spring eventually to summer. Seriously, WTF do kids do to “earn” candy from this candy-spewing rabbit deep in the pocket of BIG DENTISTRY? Just be kids? Well, all New Order fans gotta do is fork over some crazy Ticketmaster fees to earn their way into that greatest of summer holidays, The Day New Order Is Playing In [insert town name]. Psh. Totally worth it.
But the band is only here in North America for a limited time this July! They kick things off in Chicago, followed by a stop at Sasquatch! Festival in Washington, before journeying briefly up and down the West Coast of the US and Canada. Tickets for most dates go on sale March 21.
