New Order @ Ancienne Belgique, Brussels (10/17): Setlist And A Ton Of Videos

As we've likely made clear by now, we're not based in Belgium. So what band would prompt us to devote a post to a show that they performed thousands of miles away from our home base in NYC with no corresponding tour to our city yet confirmed? That, my friends, would be British rock legends and one of my favorite bands of all time, New Order.

As faux-hawked former bassist Peter Hook angrily weighed in on, 75% of the band's original lineup - including keyboard player Gillian Gilbert! - reunited this week to play two charity shows to help raise medical expenses for ailing friend Michael Shamberg, the first of which took place last night in Brussels. There are rumors floating around that these shows could lead to an American tour, which I am at least 15,000% in favor of.

And you will be too, once you check out the setlist and select HD videos from their show last night. In addition to playing "1963" live for the first time EVER, the band tore through classics like "Ceremony," "Age of Consent," "Blue Monday," and "Bizarre Love Triangle," my personal favorites "The Perfect Kiss" and "Regret," AND a rendition of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" that likely had Hooky arm-wrenchingly mad.

Check out the setlist below via our good friends at Slicing Up Eyeballs and HD video via some awesome Belgian people who were in attendance. Thanks Europe!
