New Order opened their first U.S. tour in seven years on Friday night at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA with a 16 song set that drew from their eight studio albums along with three covers of Joy Division songs.
New Order was formed in 1980 by the remaining members of Joy Division after lead singer Ian Curtis committed suicide. Of those original members, Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris remain in the group. Peter Hook, who has a flourishing solo career, has not joined in the reunion. Also in the current group are Gillian Gilbert, who was brought in to play keyboards when the group formed, Phil Cunningham, who joined in 2001, and new member Tom Chapman.
