Live: New Order @ Old Granada Studios 15 July 2017 (NO, 12k, Lg, 17 Mif)

What an immense show from New Order last night at the old Granada Studios in Manchester as part of the Manchester International Festival.  It was also the final night and what a triumph the residency has been.  Full credit must also go to Royal Northern College of Music students on synths and Liam Gillick for they all contributed to a marvellous spectacle.

There were tracks not played live since the 80s and other less accessible tunes, each one a classic, not one of them a hit.

Think what you like about Hooky but back on home turf NO still have it in spades.
Truly amazing show. I even smiled, but that may have just been wind.  Tony Wilson, certainly, would have smiled.
