New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes.. was

commissioned by Manchester International Festival

with a worldwide premier on 29 June for MIF17.

Orchestrated and conducted by Joe, the shows

feature a 12 piece sythesiser orchestra from the

Royal Northern College of Music housed in an

immersive installation by acclaimed visual artist Liam

Gillick which reacts dynamically to the music. For the

show the band have worked with Joe to deconstruct,

rethink and rebuild a wealth of material from

throughout their career: familiar and obscure, old

and new. Delighting fans with songs that haven't

been played live in 30 years the shows have

received 5 star reviews and critical acclaim across

the board.

***** The Guardian

"There are emotional scenes as New Order revisit

their back catalogue on a grand scale with synth

orchestra, airing songs not heard for 30 years plus

rapturously received tributes to the band's fated

predecessor, Joy Division"

In May 2018 the show started it's overseas journey

with performances at OGR Torino in Turin and

Wiener Festwochen in Vienna.

The Vienna shows were filmed for a documentary by

director Mike Christie. Part documentary, part concert

Decades aired on Sky Arts on 22 Sep 2018. Watch
