New Order coming to Lucerna’s ballroom

The British band will kick off its autumn tour in Prague

British alternative rock band New Order is coming to Lucerna’s Velký sál on Oct. 3. Tickets go on sale April 26 via the Ticketmaster network.

“We're delighted to be heading out on the road this October across Europe. We'll be heading to Czech Republic, Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands, with tickets going on sale Friday April 26th at 10:00 am CET,” New Order announced on its website, adding that people should share their experience in social media with the hashtag #NewOrderPrague.

The Prague date is the first on their six-date autumn tour, and this will be the band’s first show in the Czech capital.

The band formed in 1980, with former members of Joy Division, after the death of Joy Division’s vocalist Ian Curtis.

New Order was the most important band for Manchester-based independent record label Factory Records and its nightclub The Haçienda, They were also one of the most influential 1980s bands, mixing post-punk with electronic and dance music.

The current lineup includes vocalist and guitarist Bernard Sumner and percussionist Stephen Morris, who had been in Joy Division and have been New Order members since the beginning, plus keyboardist Gillian Gilbert, who joined in 1980 but left in 2002, only to rejoin in 2011. Guitarist Phil Cunningham joined in 2006 and bassist Tom Chapman in 2011.

This is the third phase for New Order. The first phase was together from 1980 to ’93, when members wanted to pursue solo projects. They re-formed in 1998 and stayed together again until 2007, when original bassist Peter Hook said he no longer wanted to continue. He later formed his own band, Peter Hook and the Light, active since 2010.

The band unexpectedly announced in 2011 that it was again going to record and tour, with what is the now-current lineup.

New Order has released two albums since its second reformation, Lost Sirens in 2013 and Music Complete in 2015, bringing the band’s catalog to 10 studio albums.

Their most successful albums so far have been Technique from 1989 and Republic from 1993, both of which hit No. 1 on the UK charts, and went gold in the US, UK and Canada.

Their Top 10 UK hits include “Blue Monday,” “True Faith,” “World in Motion” “Crystal,” and “Krafty.”
