New Order To Curate Live From Jodrell Bank Show

The Live From Jodrell Bank series is proud to announce it’s third Transmission for 2013 with Manchester legends New Order curating a day of outstanding music. Johnny Marr (The Smiths) is also set to perform at the event. The event takes place on Sunday 7th July and tickets are on sale now. Visit livefromjodrellbank.com/tickets for tickets.

New Order pioneered the electronic sound that helped to pave the way for the dance/ house music explosion at the end of the 1980’s and are thus one of the most acclaimed and influential bands of the last four decades. The band have released 9 studio albums, the last of which was last years ‘Lost Sirens’. 

New Order’s Stephen Morris said “Playing at Jodrell Bank is going to be really exciting. I grew up not far from there, and I remember riding my bike over to it all the time when I was a little lad. I saw Flaming Lips play there and they was brilliant. Really special. We’re going to try to do something special too, but we’re not telling you what! I do plan to take my life-size Dalek and Cyberman up there for the weekend at the very least. Unfortunately it’s likely that Gillian will have to spend the whole show blindfolded  because she’s got a phobia of radio telescopes, so naturally she’s terrified of Jodrell Bank. We used to drive past it, and every time she’d need to duck under the dashboard when we got close. “

Other shows taking place later this year as part of the Live From Jodrell Bank series includes Icelandic post rock act Sigur Rós who are set to perform in August, and The Australian Pink Floyd Show who will perform a celebratory show to mark the 40th anniversay of the release of Pink Floyds classic ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’.
