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.
New Order North American tour dates:
Oct. 5: Fox Theatre, Oakland, CA

Oct. 12: Palladium, Dallas, TX

Roseland ballroom in Dallas? Are you sure? Roseland seems to be in New York, and why would they play 2 dates in Dallas and nowhere else? Plus I’ve never heard of a Roseland ballroom in Dallas.
Yeah, sorry, managed to mangle the NYC date there. Fixed now.
No Hooky = not New Order = Staying Home.
(I’m not a mark for Hook, but these idiots need to kiss and make up.)
Good stay home. I can’t wait, last saw them in ’85. No Hooky=SO WHAT!
It’s not New Order w/o Hooky!
seeing the recent concert videos does not stir me to run & buy a ticket. that being said, I dont think I’d see The Light again if they came around
6 US dates? That’s IT? Pathetic.
This tour is way, way better than the last one they did with Peter Hook.
If you love New Order, this show will blow you away, welcome back Gillian!!!
“This tour is way, way better than the last one they did with Peter Hook.”
WHO CARES IF HOOKY ISN’T WITH THEM? He’s just an obnoxious bass player best left to playing covers of his old band- you know, just like Axl Rose does. I’d settle for 3/4 New Order than NO New Order.
I hope they add more dates. Please Montreal!!!
Stay home all you New Order haters!! More room for real fans to attend. No need for hooky! Lets welcome back Gillian with open arms. B.T.W she wrote most of those synth hooks and loops that gave New Order the dance groove edge we all came to love in the 80s early 90s!
The last time New Order played in the US was this past spring for a one off show at the Ultra Festival in Miami. I was there front row and it was fantastic! I will see them again and maybe a several venues. And yes I saw Hook do the Joy Division thing as well. Those shows were good and I would see him again. I do wish they would kiss and make up. They also need to get the Lost Sirens album out, but I hear Hook is the problem. I hope that is not the case. I hate that they are apart, but it gives me more opportunities to see them in their various forms.
Got Dallas tickets. Not sure how I’m going to get there, but I’ve never seen them before.
GENERAL ADMISSION, too!! Can’t wait.
N.O. should have ended it all years ago when they had some artistic integrity remaining. At least Hook still knows how important Joy Division were. I’d rather listen to Hook in NZ doing Joy Division than listen to New Odor.
No Hooky = No New Order.
This lot are nothing more than a tribute act.
