New Order's South American trip kicked off in great style at Sunday's Lollapalooza festival in Santiago. We got to debut our new track "Singularity" to an appreciative Chilean audience. Thanks go out to everyone there for the great support. We love you Chile.
Next stop the beautiful city of Buenos Aires. A huge crowd turned out to give us a warm reception for another amazing show. Then it was over to the other stage, band and audience, to see the great Arcade Fire close the festival. Hasta la vista Buenos Aires.
Then it was over the River Plate to Montevideo for our debut Uraguayan performance at the beautiful outdoor Teatro de Verano. A lovely warm evening, a great performance under the stars, and a fantastic crowd. What more could anyone want!
The final stop of our too brief South American trip was Lollapalooza festival São Paulo and what a tremendous finale it was. Since our first visits to Brazil more than 25 years ago we have always been received with such warmth and appreciation that we can only admire the Brazilean people and their country. Looking out of the hotel window, skyscrapers from horizon to horizon, and contemplating the long flight home to rainy Manchester one can only marvel at this great city and look forward to our next visit whenever that may be.
