New Order: A Legacy of Triumph Over Tragedy
Emerging from the ashes of the legendary Joy Division, New Order has stood the test of time, becoming one of the most influential and acclaimed bands globally.
This year, the band celebrated the 40th anniversary of their hit ‘Blue Monday’ and announced reissued editions of their classic compilation ‘Substance 1987.’ This album stands as their biggest-selling to date.
Despite their extensive legacy, New Order remains committed to delivering electrifying live performances, as seen in their headline show at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound and their ongoing UK and European tour.
Johnny Marr and Róisín Murphy
Marr and Bernard Sumner of New Order formed Electronic in the late 1980s, a synth-dance act that produced three albums and collaborated with synthpop pioneers Pet Shop Boys.
Johnny Marr recently announced his new album ‘Spirit Power: The Best of Johnny Marr,’ celebrating the first decade of his solo career.
Fans can anticipate a mix of Marr’s greatest hits and the new track ‘The Answer’ at Wythenshawe Park.
Róisín Murphy, known in the 1990s as one half of the pop duo Moloko, will also grace the stage, following the release of her universally acclaimed sixth studio album, Hit Parade.
Fresh from a sold-out gig at Manchester’s Albert Hall in May, Murphy promises to bring her incredible charisma and talent to deliver another stunning live performance.
For those eager to secure their spots at this historic event, presale tickets will be available starting Monday, 4th December, at 10 am. ]
