New Order at Roseland 10.18.12

They did not disappoint. Of course I could quibble & nitpick, but I won't. The setlist was great, the sound excellent, and the lights were insane. I'm sorry I don't have a better camera for these events. It was great to see Barney in such happy & good form. The entire evening seemed to be geared towards showing appreciation - to Michael Shamberg who was there & the entire show was dedicated to. To the audience to whom Barney said towards the end of the set, "Thanks for being our fans for all of these years." And finally to Ian Curtis and Joy Division - the two encore songs performed were/are JD classics, and the slide/movie projections behind New Order as they played them showed classic photos of both Ian and the band. The crowd ate it up.

New Order's music has not dated. Thank god we still have them. Let's hope we don't have to wait another seven years before seeing them again.
