Following the success of its two sold-out benefit gigs in Brussels and Paris, the reunited New Order — with keyboardist Gillian Gilbert back in the fold, but without departed bassist Peter Hook — today announced its first London concert in five years.
The band will perform at Troxy on Dec. 10, with tickets going on sale 9 a.m. U.K. time Nov. 4. The band last played London in October 2006, when it performed at Wembley Arena. So far, no other shows have been announced, although Hook — in lashing out at his former bandmates — has claimed New Order is shopping for a U.S. tour next year.
Two weeks ago, the band — Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gilbert, 2000s-era guitarist Phil Cunningham and Bad Lieutenant bassist Tom Chapman — played two benefit concerts to raise money for longtime band associate Michael H. Shamberg, who is fighting a “debilitating illness.”
We’ve got the setlist and extensive video posted from the Brussels gig right here.
New Order tour dates:
Dec. 10:Troxy, London, U.K.
