New Order's summer festival season kicked off with visits to Vienna, Lyon and Dublin. I have to confess to being a bit slow updating the website with these reports, but hey, better late than never!
Vienna 180512 - We hadn't played Vienna for a very long time. The Gasometer is a great venue in a stunning redeveloped industrial gas works site. Great show, great crowd, great to be back.
Lyon 200512 - Next stop Lyon and the Nuits Sonores Festival in another redeveloped industrial venue La Sucrière. The large, high space of La Sucrière gave room to showcase the light show and the gig looked and sounded great.
Dublin 030620 - We arrived in Dublin the day before the show to be greeted by stormy weather. Sunday morning and the rain was still coming down, but by the evening things had cleared up as we took to the stage at sunset. The crowd was with us from the start and the atmosphere only built as it went dark. We always seem to have great shows in Dublin and this was no exception. It was hands in the air all the way to the back of the crowd, past the desks where I was watching from. A highlight of the tour this far, and thanks to the vikings and associates for apres show drinks back at the hotel.
