New Order North American Tour 2014

The New Order North American Tour 2014 opened in Chicago on Tuesday night. The sold out crowd got to hear a fantastic set including the world premiere of the song "Plastic". To quote our friend Joe Shanahan. "Damn it was hot in there…add some lights and 4300 plus dancing bodies and you have an epic night in chicago. Everyone danced, everyone sweated." Remembering New Order's first Chicago show 31 years ago. "The Metro show was june 30th 1983…it was 95 degrees outside temp and the inside temp was 100 degrees. Metro’s ac went down and so did a NO sequencer. Blue Monday was done almost in a stripped down punk rock version. I will never forget it, we all fell in love with each other that night! Chicago became Manchester by the lake for evermore."
