New Order 2011

Here’s some news that sure to raise Peter Hook’s eyebrow (and more likely voice), New Order have announced that they will play a one-off London show at The Troxy on 10 Dec.

As previously reported, New Order reformed to play two shows (without Hook) in Brussels and Paris last month, in order to raise money for the care of ailing director Michael Shamberg. In an interview with Spinner, Hook, who didn’t approve of the reunion, even though it was for charity, claimed that the band were actually preparing for a US tour and vowed to “fuck New Order over”.
