New Order

Thursday 22 August 2024 will see New Order return to Cardiff for a very special show – their first in the city since 1983!  – and their first show in Wales since they played in Swansea in 1985.  The all-day outdoor concert will take place at Cardiff Bay as part of the Cardiff Bay Series, now in its third year and previously headlined by Primal Scream and The Chemical Brothers. New Order will be joined by a special supporting bill including British rockers, The Charlatans, with more acts to be announced.

Electronic music pioneers, New Order’s members hailed from Salford and Macclesfield,following the disbandment of Joy Division, and are noted as being one of the first bands to bridge the gap between post-punk and dancefloor. This year the band celebrated 40 years of their hit ‘Blue Monday’ and announced reissued editions of their classic compilation ‘Substance 1987’, the band’s biggest selling album to date. With numerous awards under their belt and over 3.5 million albums sold worldwide, summer 2023 saw New Order headline Barcelona’s Primavera Sound before they commenced their autumn UK and European tour.
