Rising from the ashes of Joy Division, New Order, who are led by Salford-born Bernard Sumner, triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of all time.

While their debut album Movement (1981) was shadowed by the legacy of Joy Division, going forward the band combined their original post-punk sound with influences from New York’s club scene. The result was Power, Corruption & Lies (1983), released on Factory Records. From this album came the single Blue Monday, which has since become the best-selling 12-inch single of all time. They went on to release a string of albums; Low-Life (1985), Brotherhood (1986) Substance (1987) and Technique (1989). Republic (1993) Get Ready (2001) and Waiting for the Sirens’ Call (2005) before Salfordian Peter Hook’s departure in 2007.

In 2015, the band released their critically acclaimed album Music Complete, reaching #2 in the UK album chart. The album's title seems to shine a hue on New Order's new manifesto: new line-up, newly eclectic sound, reinvigorated in their fourth decade as a unit.

Pet Shop Boys, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, are the most successful pop music duo in UK history and have sold over 50 million records worldwide since they emerged in the UK in 1985 with their worldwide number one single, West End Girls. They are three-time Brit Award recipients and six-time Grammy nominees and recently released their fourteenth studio LP, Hotspot.
