New Order @ Roseland Ballroom, 10/19/2012
New Order

New Order played NYC for the first time in seven years last night at Roseland Ballroom. The group, now minus iconic bassist Peter Hook but with guitarist/keyboardist (and wife to drummer Stephen Morris) Gillian Gilbert back in the fold, the show opened with "Elegia," the towering instrumental from 1985's indespensible Low-Life, which led into "Crystal" from 2001's comeback album, Get Ready.

With Gilbert back in the band, the set leaned a little more keyboardy/dancey than when they played Hammerstein back in 2005, with "The Perfect Kiss" and Power, Corruption and Lies deep cut "5, 8, 6," though it seems a missed opportunity for them not to merge directly into "Blue Monday" as that song always seemed like a dry run for what is their most well-known song (and still record holder for biggest-selling 12" single of all time). A song from Technique might've been nice ("Dream Attack" maybe?) but nice set selection, though, all-around. Hook's replacement, Tom Chapman, aped his signature style just fine (and even wore a leather jacket)... but slung his bass about a foot and a half higher.

"Temptation" closed out the main set, and the band came back for an encore of Joy Division songs, "Atmosphere" and "Love Will Tear Us Apart." New Order will do it again tonight at Roseland which is sold out. Setlist from last night's show and more pictures are below.

Oh shut the fuck up you piece of shit moron. Have heard from plenty of people who went last night and on twitter as well that it was ok. Nothing special and Peter Hook not being there was very missed. Also as you can tell from Bill's review it was just an ok show. When he loves something he lets you know.

Enjoyed the show. "Temptation" sounded amazing! Missed hearing some tracks from their TECHNIQUE album and also the song "Regret" Hate to say I also missed Hooky's bass! Still, good show. No band comes close to New Order's sound...

Wish the band hadn't gotten stuck in by Obama's motorcade... at their TX show my friend said they did four Joy Division songs as the encore- adding "Transmission" and "Shadowplay" to the two they did last night.

It is common knowledge that those who acted like their taste in music was somehow superior (even though music is subjective) were flaming homosexuals and had woefully low self esteem, further affirmed with adding pretentious French frog sayings to their statements.

The crowd at this show was absolutely horrible. New order had a good set list but they were just okay... The video projections were laughable at some points. And as always at roseland, mikes crap out and there is feedback. Always tech problems there.

The crowd was weird... I almost don't know how to describe it. It was old, nerdy, bridge and tunnely, with some big bachelor party like groups of businessmen thrown in... ?! Not what I expected at all. I've never been to a show with such rude, pushy aggressive people. I mean like yelling-at-you pushy. Not a fun vibe at all. Kinda ruined the experience.

Posted by Pepper | October 20, 2012 1:39 PM

I don't know how Thursday's show was but last night was fantastic!

The crowd, at least where we were standing, was fine sans a handful of random assholes. Just a note: if you are an abnormally tall 40+ yr. old yuppie, go stand 15' away next to the elevated VIP area instead of blocking a large group of the crowd that has been standing in the same place for over an hour. I guess large groups of random strangers telling you to move wasn't enough. Maybe then guys won't swat your cup of beer all over you and your drunken hag of a Carrie Bradshaw wannabee wife/date. I you enjoyed your ride back to CT.

Also, why do people feel compelled to obnoxiously push and shove the crowd so they can get through. Hey, I know little blonde teenyboppers need to stand their ground in the big city, but come on puppy-dog, there is no need to shove guys and girls and aggressively overcompensate for your lack of height or commonsense and courtesy.Oh, next time buy a lighter and light your joint in one shot instead of unsuccessfully trying with an entire book of matches. I hope daddy doesn't miss that roach you stole.

Let's not forget the two drunken dorks who wanted to film each other and use the light of their phones to do so. Let's just pretend we are all alone in our dorm or apartment in L.I.C. That's not a crowd of fans standing behind us, they aren't trying to enjoy a show that they paid for. No, this spotlight isn't annoying, not at all.

So besides that, it was a fucking brilliant show!

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2012 2:43 PM

Well now, all I want to know is who else saw Mandingo dancing the night away at the show? Looked like he was having a blast, taking video of his friend on his phone. I'm sure that many in attendance would have rushed him for a slap and tickle if they knew he was there!

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2012 3:46 PM

What did Bernard say about the Cure? He said something between songs, I though some kind of comment about how long they panned to play...not sure really, but it sounded distinctly like he made mention of the Cure in some way.

I felt bad for the woman who failed a gravity-check on the steps going down to the coat-check/bathrooms. She was pretty busted up and there was some blood pretty much on the steps and on her, her head, and on the floor in her general vicinity while the EMTs worked on her with security keeping people away.

I stood by the mixing booth, and people were generally not obnoxious in that area. Smelled someone light up a joint somewhere nearby at the beginning of the show.

Great set-list. I would have liked to hear 1963 and Love Vigilantes, which were played the previous evening, but the show was awesome as they played it. And they seemed pretty happy to be playing through the entire show, which was fun. I didn't mind the newer selections, and was totally enjoying songs from of Power, Corruption and Lies, which they played about half of during the course of the show. I appreciated the obvious Joy Division selections. I think the place would have blown up had they played Ice Age before the break, and people nearby were shouting for Transmission before the encore.

Holy freaking bar-tab. At one point I asked for two Red Bull and vodka, large, for friends and it was more or less vodka with some Red Bull in it. Like, massive amounts of vodka. Hilarious.

The audience appeared to be mostly 25+ age-group. There were not enough people dancing, but there wasn't much room to do that anyway without barging and blundering into people like a discourteous imbecile.

The dude working the t-shirt counter was looking overloaded. I don't know why people need to be told to have their money ready when they order. I mean, wtf, people. I can only wonder if these same people are ignorant drivers. I saw the guy in front of me order the same shirt I wanted - Unknown Pleasures CP1919 graph on white on black - and when he was handed the shirt, it turned out the graph print was chrome-vinyl, so he declined, as did I; the shirt they had on the pricing board was just white print on black, and it looked more appropriate. I guess I don't really associate chrome-vinyl rave-type stuff with Joy Division. I know, the Factory, et al, but it just looked goofy.

This show was outstanding. Outside the venue after the show my friend was talking to a British guy who was there, and that guy was laughing about how many of the songs which were played were written before he was born (lolol, damn, getting old is getting old).

Bernie said something along the lines of them being less like the Grateful Dead and more like the Cure. Something like that, in reference to their set length.

To compare NO to either GD or The Cure is monumentally asinine and douchey. Both of those other bands helped define their generation, leading the creation of new genres of rock. New Order? Recycled dance music, and done epically better by Yaz and Pet Shop Boys. There is a better comparison - NO should be grouped with Yazoo, not The Cure.

Posted by Anonymous | October 20, 2012 7:01 PM

7:01 - Your ignorance about post-punk history and the subsequent dance music that it inspired is startling. Joy Division/New Order had so much influence on 80s music and beyond, that I'm shocked that it would have to be pointed out.

"if you are an abnormally tall 40+ yr. old yuppie, go stand 15' away next to the elevated VIP area"

But if he does that gives others the right to smack his beer...check

"there is no need to shove guys and girls and aggressively overcompensate for your lack of height"

9:24 -I think one rule to follow is be courteous to strangers and be cognizant of your surroundings. If not, be prepared to possibly deal with someone more obnoxious than you. This is New York after-all. Cutting someone online at Wholefoods would most likely not yield the same response that being a prick at a show or a bar would.

Great time at the show, all except for when I pushed this douchebro when he wouldn't stop kissing his boyfriend in front of me. Dude got TOTALLY emotional, like a BITCH, and wouldn't shut the fuck up the rest of the show. I'm not convinced he even knew who New Order was to begin with, I think he just wanted to be "out and proud".

Yaz were/are better than New Order? You have no clue. Yaz was one guy and a singer. NO are a rock band that uses electronics. Recycled dance music? You obviously were not around in the 80's. They did not sound like anyone else. They did however use some of the sounds of the day as Pet Shop Boys and The Cure. If anyone sounds "asinine and douchey" it's you. How old are you, 12?

i was waiting for a post from the 10/19 show but it looks like it ain't happening.

RD here. i went friday night w/my sister. btw - i shared the comments from the previous NO item here where i was dubbed 'rockin daddy' with her & my wife and they loved them!

show friday was amazing. since i hadn't seen NO since 1989, it was a thrill just to be there. but they rocked hard. yes, very crowded, but we danced our asses off. suffering with sciatica ever since! (OK, let the metamucil and ben-gay jokes fly).

would've loved to hear transmission & shadowplay but only dallas was so lucky. i bought the unknown pleasures shirt even though it was shiny. the one on the wall was definitely white, but the girl said it was just the light hitting it. whatever.

although it was a great night, i definitely felt something was missing without hooky.
