New Order announces Seattle concert in wake of Sasquatch! festival cancellation

New Order

With news over the past weekend that the Sasquatch! Music Festival in Washington state was canceling its second weekend due to low ticket sales, it’s perhaps no surprise that New Order — which had scheduled other West Coast dates around the appearance — moved quickly to lock in a replacement gig.

The band announced today that it will instead perform July 6 at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre; tickets for that concert go on sale April 11, according to the group.

Following a South American trek in late March and early April, New Order — Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gillbert, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman — will return to North America in July for five performances, beginning in Chicago on July 1 and wrapping up in Los Angeles on July 13.

 

New Order tour dates:

SOUTH AMERICA
March 29-30: Lollapalooza Chile, Santiago, Chile
April 1-2: Lollapalooza Argentina, Buenos Aires, Argentina
April 3: Rock n’ Fall Festival, Montevideo, Uruguay
April 5-6: Lollapalooza Brazil, Sao Paolo, Brazil

NORTH AMERICA
July 1: Aragon Ballroom, Chicago, IL
July 6: Paramount Theatre, Seattle, WA
July 8: Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Vancouver, B.C.
July 11: Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, CA
July 13: Greek Theatre, Los Angeles, CA

    Thank you !

  3. Cool, definitely see this show. The one thing I hate about Washington is we have no proper large concert venue that can house people indoors so all the larger acts go to the Gorge during the summer which requires a long drive and camping of which both I hate immensely. Personal gripe of course, younger types just call me old and move off my lawn slowly. ;-)

    • What about Key Arena? It might not be the perfect venue in some respects, but it does hold 16K for concerts. I’ve seen a number of shows there — Neil Young, the Police twice, who knows who all. It’s okay, and the location is good.

      But I totally agree with you about that endless drive to the Gorge and camping out there — both suck. Last time I went over there for a show, we spent the night in our pickup at a rest area partway home, which was actually a step up from the campground.

  4. Meant to specify Seattle, not all of Washington…

  5. I like showers and comfort…too old for a hipster festivals, nice change….they are awesome live…

  6. @lotus – I guess I should have specified a good site, I can’t stand the Key myself. The sound in there is horrible. I really like the White River amphitheater but it isn’t big enough to take the Gorge out of the picture for bigger acts.

    Not seeing anything on Paramount Theatre’s website yet for July 6th date. They do have Kraftwerk for July 1st. I’m going to that one as well as New Order, and Nick Cave on July 2nd. Busy week.
