If anyone’s interested, New Order’s 2018 Alexandra Palace gig is being broadcast on Sky Arts at 9pm (Sky Arts is also on Freeview for anyone without Sky)
Made the mistake of watching a few minutes. It was awful. Barney’s vocals had been tuned but it made them sound even worse. His voice was never about being in tune, but it was about sounding passionate and straining to hit the notes. Now he just mumbles and grunts in the same downbeat key all the time.

Synchronise love to the beat of the show

It was much too slick for me. Longed for the days of 40 minutes and no encore. Not enough long slung bass work either. Ultraviolence and Your Silent Face were great though
