5.0 star rating Michael B from Vancouver, British Columbia


Oh I disagree. The Vancouver show was top-notch! I felt honored to be in the audience. New Order blew my ears and eyes away. I haven't danced like that in years. Our Vancouver show closed with some Joy Division tunes and Ian Curtis tribute. Then, what was left of my clothing, was blown entirely off my body by the Pet Shop Boys. I've never had such fun in my life. Hit after hit after hit! Amazing show! Great crowd too!

I agree with you Michael B. Both bands and Paul Oakenfold were great. I’ve seen all three acts a few times over the years. I did not think a DJ could get an older crowd up and dancing. Nope! Wrong! Song selection connected big time. They were singing, dancing, fist pumping. I loved New Order’s performance. I dunno I quests I connect with music that has mistakes and isn’t flawless . New Order has heart and soul. Berny sings like that on purpose. I’ve seen him do that Every show I’ve attended. Not sure why, it’s punk rock I guess. Pet Ship boys sounded great. And Loud! The crowd was super into it. Every single person in that building had a fantastic evening. That I am sure of. Hope we all get to do it again some day. 🙂👍 My only gripe is that the sound quality and levels seemed lower for New Order. Shame. They are the most important band(s) of the last 50 years. No New Order no EDM. Not to mention pioneering playing rock instruments over drum machine loops…….. Which every single pop act now replicates

Maybe the previous person should have done some research.. pet shop boys and NO alternate openings every other show…stop whining and read. The show would have been 5 stars if the vocals had not “aged” to the point of being a bit disappointing. And/or the band had been a bit more engaged with an audience that started out really ready to rock. Pet shop boys were more structured and obviously less musical but their willingness to interact and have a bit of fun should have been more of an inspiration. That said, NO flat rocked when they leaned in on the guitars and off the vocals. All in all this was a an awesome rock show.

I went the second night, Saturday, to see New Order at the Hollywood bow. We arrived at 7pm to be shocked ... New order was already playing! ? They changed to order for pet shop boys to close the show. It is obvious why after seeing the show, New Order was WEAK! They didnt play long, and then ended with a lame cover of 'CA dreaming". There were so many of their songs I would had rather heard in such a short lineup. The pet shop boys came out and killed it, was like a non stop dance party. Never saw that coming, but at least they made the show worth it. As a big N.O fan, this was a huge disappointment, not only the bowl changing the band order (we were late cuz we really only wanted to see N.O), there was no notification of this, and then N.O just didn't sound all that great.
