New Order Reunite for 2 Shows

New Order will play for the first time in five years for a pair of charity concerts next month. The shows will take place at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels on October 17th and La Bataclanon in Paris on October 18th to raise money for artist and filmmaker Michael Shamberg, who has been struggling with a severe illness since 2005. This lineup of New Order will not include original bassist Pete Hook who left the band on bad terms in 2007. The two shows will include keyboardist Gilliam Gilbert, who hasn't toured with the band since 2001.
