New Order’s set from the closing night of the first weekend of the massive Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is streaming right now (10:40 p.m. Pacific on Sunday night) on the fest’s YouTube channel. Check out the full performance below. (And if you tune in late, you can scroll backward on the YouTube player and watch from the beginning.)
Either my streaming synch is way off or Bernard isn’t singing any of this live. Pretty sad anyway, they look tired compared to when I saw them in the ’80s and ’90s
Barnie’s voice is terrible. Waiting for the Sirens call was hellish.
I saw them at Radio City Music Hall last Thursday and they were great! His voice was in top form.
No it wasn’t.
They rocked in NYC last Thursday… Glad I never saw a bad show by them. Killed it.
It all changed back in 2013 when they played Coachella. Saw them a few months before in Brooklyn & AMAZING. Then saw them at Coachella & HORRIBLE. They changed their songs & style to try reaching the young kids and failed horribly. Saw them last year at Radio City & was garbage. So sad to see one of my all time favorite bands turned to shite
Joe, I saw them last year at Radio City also (and this year too), and I don’t know what show you saw, but they were amazing! Sorry you thought they were garbage.
I don’t think Barnie’s voice sounds terrible, maybe a little tired. But maybe he wasn’t fully recovered from the kick-ass show at Radio City only 2 nights before. I was lucky enough to be in the 2d row and I didn’t stop dancing all night! As far as George’s comment that they look tired, who looks as fresh and young as they did in the 80s and 90s?!
I’ve been a fan since 1980 and seen them play festivals and stand alone gigs.Still listen to them everyday. Maybe I’m locked in the past but his singing has definitely gone downhill and there are times when he sounds like he’s doing a karaoke of himself singing NO. Seeing Hooky for the fifth time this year and although his ‘ singing’ is as good as mine, the emotion and feeling he puts into the gigs is like NO of old.
