2 concerts, 1 from New York way back in 1981, and 1 from New Orders triumphant return at the 1998 Reading Festival, and an excellent band interview.
New Order Live At Reading cannot be faulted. The setlist is fantastic, featuring such Joy Division classics as 'Atmosphere' and 'Isolation', and classic New Order tunes
'Regret', 'Temptation', 'True Faith' and 'Blue Monday'. The band is fantastic playing the best they ever have, and Barney is so gawky and geeky, he
(show full description) just comes across as being both cool and having a really good time. The only bum note is his excruciatingly embarrassing mid-song shout of "Rock the F**kin' house!" But even then, everyone onstage and off is having such a good time, you find yourself actually enjoying it.
More interesting though is the gig from New York in '81, where the band not only discern to rock the audience, they barely even look in their direction. But still, the setlist here is an absolute killer, and the band are in the transition phase, halfway between Joy Division and New Order. But of big interest here for even the casual fan is a prototype 'Temptation', which is quite simply amazing!
This is an unbeatable New Order DVD. The two concerts are short at just under an hour each, but both are fantastic gigs, well-documented. This is essential.
