Leading the way as one of the most influential British bands of the last 40 years, Manchester legends New Order are set to return to Yorkshire this September for what promises to be a memorable night set in the spectacular grounds of the stunning Piece Hall, Halifax.

With an illustrious career and 10 studio albums under their belts, including, debut masterpiece ‘Movement’ – produced by Factory Record’s Martin Hannett, seminal second album and widespread acclaimed ‘Power, Corruption and Lies’, and their last album “Music Complete” released in 2015, which was critically acclaimed as a career highlight.
