New Order to play first UK tour in 6 years
Date Posted: 01/02/12
New Order will tour the UK for the first time in six years when they go on the road in the spring.
They will entertain fans booking Manchester hotels when they appear at the city's O2 Apollo on Thursday April 26th.
Next up is a trip to Birmingham and a performance at The Ballroom, The Other Room & The End on Sunday April 29th, before the band then head on to London's O2 Academy in Brixton on Wednesday May 2nd and Glasgow's O2 Academy.
Last year New Order announced that they were reforming, however, this was to be done without founding member Peter Hook.
Gillian Gilbert and Tom Chapman will take his place, and Hook has since started legal proceedings to prevent the band from using the New Order name.
Speaking to NME.com, he said: "It's in the hands of the lawyers. The point is that they shouldn't be using the New Order name without me and it's up to the lawyers."
