After missed opportunities at a pair of U.S. shows booked around Coachella this past April, it finally happened: Bernard Sumner joined Johnny Marr on stage in England tonight for a one-song Electronic reunion as the duo performed their 1989 single “Getting Away With It”  during the ex-Smiths guitarist’s slot opening for New Order.

The reunion took place earlier today at the New Order-cured Live From Jordell Bank: Transmission event in the shadow of the University of Manchester’s Lovell Telescope near Cheshire, England.

Below, check out the first audience video to surface of today’s performance of “Getting Away With It” — a track that also featured Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys on backing vocals, and which later appeared on Electronic’s 1991 self-titled debut — via uploader Gaynor Tension.

UPDATE 7/8/13: We’ve added better video via polewka123.
