New Order & Johnny Marr Confirmed March 7, 2013

We are very proud to announce a third Transmission for 2013 with New Order curating a day of outstanding music from Manchester’s rich music scene on 7th July 2013.

One of the most acclaimed and influential bands of the last four decades New Order pioneered the electronic sound that helped pave the way for the dance/house music explosion at the end of the 80s.  The band has had a profound influence on music and is cited by legions of artists as an inspiration.  They have released 9 studio albums, the last of which ‘Lost Sirens’ was released in 2012.  Their shows last year were euphorically received as the band played a set of classic anthems including Bizarre Love TriangleTrue FaithBlue Monday and Temptation. This is an unmissable opportunity to see an iconic act in an iconic setting!

New Order have invited one of the greatest guitarists the UK has ever produced who formed The Smiths one of the most important bands in the history of music. Johnny Marr and New Order’s Bernard Sumner formed Electronic at the end of the 80’s, a classic alternative pop group and this is a rare opportunity to catch them sharing the same stage.

Electro architects The WhipJake Evans (Bad Lieutenant) and experimental indie rock outfit Hot Vestry are support acts handpicked by the legendary New Order.
