Those waiting for the North American Unity Tour featuring New Order and Pet Shop Boys will have to wait a little longer. After initially targeting fall 2020, the dates were pushed back and then pushed back again. The groups are now hoping that the third time will be the charm and are rescheduling the trek for fall 2022.
New Order unveiled the change in a statement on Twitter. “Due to the continuing uncertainty caused by the Covid pandemic, [Pet Shop Boys] and New Order unfortunately have to announce that their highly anticipated Unity tour of North America will move on next year, ”they wrote. But it wasn’t all bad news.
First, Grammy nominated DJ Paul Oakenfold joined the “Unity Tour”, giving viewers a bit more bang for their buck. On top of that, the tour added a new stop at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, while the Seattle show at The Gorge Amphitheater moved to Climate Pledge Arena. Those in possession of tickets will have their purchases honored for the new dates, and those looking for tickets can get them through Ticketmaster or here. Check out the full itinerary below.
New Order’s Bernard Sumner appears to have recovered from his battle with COVID-19, and last year the band released their first new song in five years, “Be a Rebel.” They also unveiled a deluxe edition of their 1983 album Power, Corruption & Lies. As for the Pet Shop Boys, they recently released the new single “Cricket wife”.
