As hinted at last week, the reunited New Order is headed Down Under in the new year, having just been announced as one of the headliners next March of Australia’s traveling Future Music Festival, which also will feature performances by acts including Swedish House Mafia, Fatboy Slim, Skrillex and Aphex Twin.
The band, which wraps up a three-city South American trek tonight, will perform in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide in early March. The group — Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert , 2000s-era guitarist Phil Cunningham and Bad Lieutenant bassist Tom Chapman — also have a London date booked this weekend.

Sounds good. Apart from the thousands of shirtless, drugged up yobbos that will also be there.
Who cares?! If hook isn’t there, it’s not New Order. Sumner and the rest of crew are acting like asshats.
Hooksey is a big boy and has not chosen to be here. chapman most welcome. sounds great and the rest of the band sound great.bring’em on I’ll be there can’t wait.
Read this today in the Melbourne press. What a pain. It’s great they’re coming to Australia, but I had hoped for stand-alone dates, rather than being mixed in with a bunch of other artists people might not want to see in a festival setting.
I wished I lived in Australia, it is going to be a good concert.
Now lets not 4 get Hooky is busy doin the Joy Division thing! All 4 New Order can’t wait, It’s gonna be a great day
