New Order Coming to US for More Than Bigfoot
New Order Tour
In an announcement sure to give devoted fans the best “Case of the (Blue) Mondays” they could’ve ever imagined, legendary British rockers New Order have announced an additional four concert dates in North America for the summer of 2014. While the band has been confirmed previously for the July 6 Sasquatch! Music Festival in George, WA, the New Order US tour will begin earlier that week at Aragon Ballroom in Chicago and stretch through July 13 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. As the band continues soaring through its fourth decade together, their unique blend of rock, new wave, and electronica will be a welcome addition to the US summer concert scene, and their shows will surely be the easiest place to find people so delighted to be so blue.
All the “Blue Monday” talk, of course, refers to the band’s all-time great record which set the all time 12″ single sales record in the UK when it was originally released. While the Orgy cover from the late 90’s helped reintroduce the song and the band’s influence to a new generation of listeners, it’ll always be the original New Order work and its multiple re-releases that will be the landmark of electronica’s introduction into the new wave of rock back in the mid-eighties. New Order wasn’t a one-hit wonder, either; with other hits including “True Faith” and “Regret,” New Order will bring a fat stack of popular and lasting dance tracks on tour with them this year. After warming up South American crowds on a few Lollapalooza stops, expect to see New Order’s stateside visit drive high ticket demand and a few nights of leaving it all on the dance floor.
