A NIGHT FOR JON BROOKES with the CHARLATANS & FRIENDS at the ROYAL ALBERT HALL, London on Friday 18th October 2013
New Order are proud to be supporting this celebration of Jon Brookes. The Charlatans drummer sadly died last month after being diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2010. We are very pleased to have Stephen and Gillian joining the line up of friends for the concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London on Friday 18th October 2013. Proceeds from the night go to The Brain Tumour Charity.
Postscript: The show was a great success. Tim & Friends short set of "Love Vigilantes" "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and the Vaccines song "Melody Calling" was well received. Sadly later that evening Gillian had an accident leaving the venue and broke her ankle. We wish her a speedy recovery. See the before and after photos here.
I have just been diagnosed with a bone fracture in my leg. Don't worry I'm not going to cancel the North American tour. I wouldn't do that. It just means that when I go on stage I am in pain and physically unable to give it my all. It's frustrating and makes performing very difficult but I'm doing the best that I can and ask for your understanding of the situation. As I was leaving a hotel one of the doormen said "Break a leg" apparently that's just what I have done ouch! Thank you I hope y'all still enjoy the shows.
Just to clarify things: Bernard's injury is a fracture not a break and it stems back to an earlier injury
that never quite repaired itself.
New Order kicked off the tour in Texas on Friday night, 19th July, with a sell out show at the Austin Music Hall. DJ Little Martin got the party started right, Holy Ghost! were great and New Order were fantastic. It was great to be back in ATX after 24 years away! Thank you Austin. Here's a nice review.
It was a rainy day in Atlanta on Sunday 21st July. At about 5pm it started raining heavily. Thunder and lightning too. It was still raining when we got back to the gig. It poured down all through Holy Ghost! (they are a great band). During the changeover the power went out for a couple of minutes. We are very lucky really. As we took to the stage it stopped raining and 1 min after we left the stage after the encore the power went again. It all could have been far worse! New Order send a big thank you to all the fans who braved the weather and turned out to see us.
Wednesday's show in Brooklyn was a sell out. It's always great to play to a New York audience and last night was no exception with everyone enjoying the open air concert on a fine evening. DJ Billy Caldwell was joined by Justin Strauss to set the music stage for Holy Ghost! to play to their home crowd and New Order to deliver their best. Williamsburg needs more parks and the profits from this show will go towards reclaiming the site and providing a green space for the people of Brooklyn. Take a look at the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn website here.
We continued through Philly, Merriweather Post and Boston where we played our last show with Holy Ghost. They are a great band and have been a huge asset on this tour. We wish them well. We gathered everyone together for a group photo New Order, Holy Ghost! and DJ Whitney Fierce.
Se we are now in the last weekend of the tour. Friday night we played Llllapolooza see this review, and Sunday we will finish the tour in Montreal for Osheaga.
