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.
Tonight (Wednesday 24th July) we are in Brooklyn. Hope to see you in Williamsburg Park.
