New Order, October 5-23
New Order doesn't really have anything to prove at this point. Hell, they could've stopped making music in '86 and rode the dancefloor-generated royalties of "Blue Monday" and "Bizarre Love Triangle" to some distant Manchester mansions. But here we are; sans original member Peter Hook, but if you've ridden with them this long, that doesn't matter anyway. The group hasn't released an album or toured the states since 2005's Waiting for the Sirens' Call, but expect a wide-ranging setlist of hits and obscurities.
