Marking their first full headline performance in the city since 2021. The all-day outdoor concert will take place at Wythenshawe Park following the successful debut event headlined by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds earlier this year. New Order will be joined by a huge supporting bill including Manchester’s very own Johnny Marr and adopted Manc Róisin Murphy.
Support at the event will come from former The Smiths guitarist and good friend of the band, Johnny Marr. In the late 1980s, Marr and New Order’s Bernard Sumner formed Electronic, a synth-dance act that remained their primary side project throughout the 1990s. Together, the pair released three albums and collaborated with fellow synthpop pioneers Pet Shop Boys. This year, Johnny Marr announced a new album ‘Spirit Power: The Best of Johnny Marr’ to celebrate the first ten years of his solo career, featuring songs from across his four solo albums. Fans can expect to hear Johnny’s greatest hits alongside the brand new track ‘The Answer’ as he takes to the stage at Wythenshawe Park next August.
