I saw New Order at the Mann in 89
Can you please recreate the tour shirt with the multi colored American flag?
It would mean a lot to me.
Joe – I too saw the Technique tour on April 15, 1989 at Six Flags over GA’s Southern Star Amphitheater. They opened with the bass-thumping “Fine Time” to a crowd of 6000 or so. I bought the same US multi-colored stripe shirt featuring the tour dates. I misplaced it years ago from transition into adulthood and then marriage. I would LOVE to have that shirt again or a replica. Good call.
Im still baffled by that venue, but we did camp out at Turtles and get 5th row for a mere $5. My friend got to ride the roller coaster with Hookey. Great shirt. I wish I had mine still but wore it to death. Oh, and I learned their “no encore for lame crowds” rule at that show when they just stood around and popped beers after the last song. :D
Of course this has to be the same night as Front 242 in mpls.
Nowhere in the south at all???
Would be very cool if the encores included “Getting Away with It” and “Disappointed” . . . with a certain Johnny Marr joining the festivities. :)
I like the sound of that!
Was super excited until I saw the locations. Another North American tour with no gigs within a thousand miles.
Will have to hold out hope for additional later dates.
Totally making sure I can get tickets on presale.
I wanted to know if they’re coming to Texas?
Great call – Play “Disappointed” and then just drop the mics. Cannot be topped.
They’re definitely “getting away with it”, indeed!
Does anyone know the presale codes for presales starting tomorrow Feb 26?
