Every time I see you falling, I get down on my knees and pray… Sorry, had to be done! Just like me, Scotty is a huge fan of the 80’s and the new wave scene. I don’t know what it is about that sound but it bring joy to my heart.
One of the pioneers of new wave, New Order had a show at the Greek earlier this month and Scotty, our resident music man,was bound and determined to get down there. He clutched his vintage vinyl and waited for hours to meet the band and see the show!

I have been a HUGE fan of New Order as far back as I can remember. I have always wanted to see them, but every music fanatic like me said to not waste my time as they were horrible live. I don’t know why I took the advice, as I usually make my own decisions. After buying a few live New Order DVD’s I saw how amazing they were live and was determined to see them live the next time they came to Los Angeles.
I decided to go to the venue EARLY as I wanted the group to possibly sign an album. So, I went early armed with my “Round and Round” 12” and my “Regret” 12”. There were two other fans waiting when I arrived. We spoke of what songs were most special to us and how amazing the group was to us.
After about five hours, the group began to arrive. Gillian Gilbert and Stephen Morris arrived first. They were beyond kind.
Both signed and took photos with all of us.
Bernard Sumner arrived, but only waved. We die-hards stood by with the hopes that he would come out. While we were waiting, a woman with a British accent came out from the venue and asked if we were waiting for signatures. We all replied that we were and she said that she was the band’s manager and would let Bernard know. I wasn’t holding my breath, but low and behold she brought Bernard out and he signed and took photos. It was AMAZING to meet these legends.
NOW, it was time to see the show. WOW! New Order did not disappoint. In fact, they BLEW ME AWAY. It was like hearing the angels play in heaven to hear “Ceremony,” “Perfect Kiss,” “Love Vigilantes,” and “Temptation” live! The night was pure magic. Thank you to New Order and their manager for an unforgettable night!
