As promised, the reactivated New Order — Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert, 2000s-era guitarist Phil Cunningham and Bad Lieutenant bassist Tom Chapman — will return to North America this fall for the first time since 2005, performing at least seven dates in October.
The band today announced a short tour that opens Oct. 5 in Oakland, Calif., and hits Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas, New York City and Chicago before wrapping up Oct. 23 in Toronto. It’s not clear whether more dates will be added, although there’s certainly room in that schedule for more dates.
In a news release announcing the tour, Sumner said: “We’ve been having such a great time together this year, playing shows all over Europe, and we’re all really excited to be playing America again. We have so many friends and fans there we can’t wait to get back!”
New Order last performed int he U.S. in May 2005, when the band played New York’s Hammerstein Ballrom, and hasn’t performed in Canada since 2001.
