From the ashes of the legendary band Joy Division, New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of all time. This year, the band celebrated 40 years of their hit ‘Blue Monday’ and announced reissued editions of their classic compilation ‘Substance 1987’, the band’s biggest-selling album to date. Never resting on their legacy, New Order continues to perform live around the world. Summer 2023 saw New Order headline Barcelona’s Primavera Sound before they commenced their UK and European tour this autumn.
Support at the event will come from former The Smiths guitarist and good friend of the band, Johnny Marr. In the late 1980s, Marr and New Order’s Bernard Sumner formed Electronic, a synth-dance act that remained their primary side project throughout the 1990s. Together, the pair released three albums and collaborated with fellow synthpop pioneers Pet Shop Boys. This year, Johnny Marr announced a new album ‘Spirit Power: The Best of Johnny Marr’ to celebrate the first ten years of his solo career, featuring songs from across his four solo albums. Fans can expect to hear Johnny’s greatest hits alongside the brand new track ‘The Answer’ as he takes to the stage at Wythenshawe Park next August.
Known in the 1990s as one half of the pop duo Moloko, Irish singer and songwriter Róisín Murphy joins the bill at Wythenshawe Park, following the recent release of her universally acclaimed sixth studio album, Hit Parade. Fresh off a breathtaking sold-out gig at Manchester’s Albert Hall in May this year, Róisin Murphy will bring her incredible charisma and talent to Manchester for what will be another stunning live performance.
