Manchester’s doom-and-gloom originators turned rave pioneers – the world’s most cantankerous dance band – returns. Guitarist Barney Sumner rid himself of best fiend bassist Peter Hook in assembling a less abrasive lineup with original members Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert, plus his Bad Lieutenant comrades, guitarist Phil Cunningham and bassist Tom Chapman. Expect a loop through all the club pleasers plus resurrections of Joy Division classics – with no irony, which was why Hooky was dumped. New York synthpop duo Holy Ghost! opens.

– Richard Whittaker
